The Mission of Cannon County Schools states:  "We are committed to a comprehensive system of support to assure...the EVERY student reaches a high level of academic achievement."  The special education department is an integral part of this system, ensuring that all students with disabilities are provided individualized instruction and supports to meet their needs.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act requires school districts to provide a free appropriate public education to any student who has met disability eligibility standards and whose needs cannot be met in the general education setting without the provision of special education services.  We are dedicated to serving our students the least restrictive environment, providing children with as much participation with same age peers and engagement in the regular curriculum as possible.
