Home Parents Students Staff Employment









  The Exceptional StudentEducation and Student Services Department is committed to supporting students with diverse learning needs, their families, and schools in providing access to a high quality education.  The Exceptional Student Educationand Student Services Department provides services, specially designed instruction, and supports for students with disabilities and gifted learners.

Our goal is to provide every student with a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE); to help exceptional students progress in school, access the general curriculum, and prepare for life after school.

We have developed programs that serve our students in the most effective way possible.  To ensure that our students receive appropriate services, we provide training to teachers, school staff, administrators, support staff and others.  Our trainings focus on current instructional practicies and other important issues.

In addition, the Gadsden County School District provides trainings and materials to help parents understand their child's exceptionality, their child's right to a "free appropriate public education", and the processes and activities that are involved in exceptional student education.  We provide activities that encourage parent involvement  and collaboration between parents and professionals.  Extra effort is put forth to ensure that students and families receive quality services.  We are committed to making a difference in the lives of all students.
