About Us

The Department of Education is committed to increasing educational opportunities and improving outcomes for students with disabilities through A Shared Path to Success initiatives. Our goals are to ensure that all students with IEPs:

  • have access to a rigorous academic curriculum and are held to high academic standards, enabling them to fully realize their potential and graduate prepared for independent living, college, and careers;
  • are taught in the "least restrictive environment" that is academically appropriate, and, as often as possible, alongside students without disabilities;
  • receive special education services that are targeted and provide the appropriate level of support throughout the school day; and
  • are able to attend their zoned schools or the school of their choice, while still receiving the supports they need to succeed. Read more in Special Education Resources.
