Special Education Studies and Evaluations

Creating a strong program to support students with disabilities requires a multi- faceted approach. Districts want to provide high quality educational services to students with special needs and yet maintain an efficient program. Determining what works best for students with special needs and keeping it cost effective is a difficult balance to strike for most districts.
