Over 1,400 students with disabilities, preschool through age 21, receive services in all district schools, either in separate programs specially tailored to meet their needs, or in regular classrooms with appropriate assistance. All schools provide identification services to determine a student's eligibility for special education. In addition the Child Find screening service identifies special needs children younger than age five. In compliance with state law, vision and hearing screening services are provided for all students in kindergarten, first ,second, third, fifth, seventh and ninth grade.

Specific programs include: Child find, Early Childhood, SCIL (Self-Contained Individualized Learning), PACE (Profression for Adaptive and Cognitive Education), Transition (community based, 18-21 years of age), services for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, Visually Impaired, and Audiology.
