One of the goals of the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) is to be the district of choice for students with disabilities. We believe that all students, regardless of background or circumstance, can achieve at the highest levels.
Parents, families and community members play an essential role in the education of their children, especially when a child has a disability and needs special services. You are an expert on your child and his or her most important advocate. This guide is meant to give you a brief overview of the programs and services we offer to our students with disabilities.
