The South Windsor Public Schools Department of Special Education provides educational services to more than 583 students throughout the district. The system has special education teachers, paraprofessionals, speech pathologist, and related service personnel that provide instruction and related services to students who have a disability. Students are eligible for special education services from the age of 3 through 21.
South Windsor Public Schools believe that all children have a fundamental right to an education appropriate to their needs.
The School District is committed to providing educational programs and services that will support meaningful educational progress for each student with special needs.
The goal for students with special needs in South Windsor is the same as for all students, as stated in the District’s Vision Statement: South Windsor Public Schools promotes an engaging and dynamic culture of learning that prepares students to achieve their own individual excellence.”
Special education services are provided throughout all seven schools in the district. These services are provided through certified special education teachers who have specialized certification in those areas that they teach, be that: preschool, elementary, middle and high school. Staff that focus on particular core subject areas in the middle and high school are required by state mandates to be “highly qualified” when teaching in core subject areas.
