The goal of Special Education is to provide appropriate resources and support to all students so that as many exceptional pupils as possible remain in regular classes. All teachers share the responsibility for meeting the needs of exceptional and non-exceptional children. The Special Education Resource Teachers deal with a wide range of exceptionalities and administer educational assessments and develop programming for students in conjunction with the classroom teachers.
