The goal of the FNSBD Special Education Department is to work collaboratively with parents, families and agencies to develop and provide the best educational program for students with disabilities. We provide a range of educational and social services to individuals with disabilities who are between three and 22 years of age.
Special education is designed to ensure that students with disabilities are provided with an environment that allows them to be educated effectively. Thus, a full range of program options are available to meet the educational and service requirements of individuals with exceptional needs in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). At each school there is one or more special education teachers who serve as a case manager for the student with a disability. Each student who is determined to have a disability has a yearly plan called an Individual Education Plan (IEP). The IEP is a collaborative document created by a group of individuals who are familiar with the student's needs. This plan may be amended before the annual date if the team agrees.
Please explore the website for more information and resources related to special education. Keep in mind that the website is a work in progress.
~Feel free to contact the Special Education Department with any questions or concerns.~
