Special Education

DC Public Schools aspires be a model district for special education. Our goal is to provide high quality inclusion and special education services, and to dramatically improve academic outcomes for students with disabilities.

Our four strategic goals are to:

  1. Increase academic achievement
  2. Include more students
  3. Involve families in their child’s success
  4. Prepare students for college and the workforce

Determining If Your Child Needs Special Education

The world of special education can seem complicated and overwhelming at times. It’s important for parents of students with special needs to understand special education, as well as their child’s progress, so they can be the best possible advocates for their child. If you have any questions, you can contact the Division of Specialized Instruction, and someone can help answer your question.
