The Department of Education is committed to increasing educational opportunities and improving outcomes for students with disabilities through A Shared Path to Success initiatives. Our goals are to ensure that all students with IEPs:
have access to a rigorous academic curriculum and are held to high academic standards, enabling them to fully realize their potential and graduate prepared for independent living, college and careers;
are taught in the “least restrictive environment” that is academically appropriate, and, as often as possible, alongside students without disabilities;
receive special education services that are targeted and provide the appropriate level of support throughout the school day; and
are able to attend their zoned schools or the schools of their choice, while still receiving the supports they need to succeed.
The Division of Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners is committed to providing opportunities for all teachers and school-based staff to learn more about meeting the needs of all students.
