Thank you for visiting the Exceptional Children's Website!  The purpose of this website is to promote community capacity building by sharing EC news, resources and contact information.  Our department offers a full continuum of services to students who meet specific eligibility criteria.  We are committed to ensuring that every EC student has access to the general curriculum and an opportunity to learn that is equal to that of their non-disabled peers.  Certified teachers, related services personnel, and support staff work hard each day to provide specially designed, research based instruction in the least restrictive environment to promote their students' development.  We are dedicated to building authentic staff, parent, and community relationships to support the success of the students that we serve.
