The Purpose of Special Education:
"To ensure that all students with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasized special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living" (IDEA, 2004).
Welcome to Special Education. Washington County School District (WCSD), in accordance with Utah State Office Special Education Rules and Policies, offers a continuum of special education services designed to provide a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for your child with a disability. Our department values that students with disabilities have access to and progress in the general core curriculum within a safe learning environment. Placement decisions, related services decisions, and instructional decisions should occur within the collaborative framework of a child's individualized educational program (IEP).
This site is intended to promote greater understanding about the continuum of special education services available to meet the unique needs of a student as a result of the student’s disability. We invite administrators, teachers, related service personnel, other school personnel, and parents to access the resources available.
