Special Education

Our district’s versatile special education department provides a spectrum of services and resources for students with special needs. Students in the general education classroom have access to inclusion teachers who help bridge learning gaps, and we have dedicated classrooms for students with various learning and intellectual disabilities. We offer services beyond the normal reach of a rural school district, including but not limited to:

  • Dyslexia therapy with multiple reading specialists.

  • On-site speech-language pathologists.

  • A team of certified special education teachers with expertise in behavior and autism.

Our department operates on a shared, fundamental belief:

No matter the level of the disability, all children can learn, and all children are worthy of a high quality education.

 

What is Special Education?

Special Education is individualized service for children (age 3-21) who have been identified as eligible for services that improve the educational experience. These students have been evaluated by our office and deemed to meet the criteria set forth by the state of Mississippi, which ensures them access to these specialized services. The thirteen disability categories for whom we offer service include:

  1. Autism
  2. Deaf-Blind
  3. Developmental Delay
  4. Emotional Disability
  5. Hearing Impairment
  6. Language/Speech Impairment
  7. Intellectual Disability
  8. Multiple Disability
  9. Orthopedic Impairment
  10. Other Health Impairment
  11. Specific Learning Disability
  12. Traumatic Brain Injury
  13. Visual Impairment
