 Special Education Regional Centers

We are pleased to announce the continuation of our Special Education (SPED) Regional Centers to help you with your Special Education needs. A full-time Special Education office assistant is located throughout the district to assist parents, Special Education field staff, and school staff members with information, contacts, transportation, routing requests, intakes, and other special education-related services.

The purpose of the SPED Regional Centers is to improve services by increasing the availability and level of support at the school sites. The Regional Centers also create strong, positive ties to students, staff, and community, help close communication gaps, provide parent support closer to home, decrease response time, decrease travel time, and increase the amount of time support staff are available to assist students, teachers, support staff, parents, and site administrators.
