Special Education - Our Vision and Promise to You

The Office of Special Education aspires to be recognized and respected as a leader in urban special education. We are determined to do whatever it takes to ensure that students with disabilities become successful adults holding good jobs, living independently and engaging in the community.

Our three pledges to the community:

  • Build parent and community trust
  • Build capacity to serve all our students
  • Control our costs

An important component of achieving these goals is ensuring that our schools are inclusive schools that can serve the needs of all our students.
