Special Education

The Special Education Department's mission is to provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) that improves outcomes for children and youth with disabilities.  We provide specialized instruction and services for students with educational disabilities, and ensure their access to the general education curriculum and school activities to the greatest extent appropriate.  Our goal is for each student to demonstrate academic achievement, social emotional growth, self-advocacy, and independence.


Welcome to the Special Education Department of the Hampstead School District.
