About the Office of Student Support Services

The Office of Student Support Services is responsible for special education services and supports for students with disabilities throughout the district.  Most importantly, we provide programs and placements for students with disabilities so each student may reach their full potential.  In order to be eligible for special education services, a student’s performance in school must be negatively impacted by a specific physical, social/emotional, or learning disability.  The services that a child with a disability receives are determined based on their specific, individual needs.  Please refer to “A Guide to the Special Education Referral Process” for detailed explanation of the CSE/CPSE process.
