The Sealy ISD Department of Special Education is committed to providing students with disabilities valuable educational opportunities to prepare them for positive school and post-school outcomes. Students with disabilities receive instruction in the least restrictive environment, are educated with non-disabled peers, and are provided access to general education curriculum and instruction to the extent appropriate for the student.
