Springfield Public School District 186 offers a full continuum of services for students with disabilities, ages 3-21 years old. Our services are based on five key principles:

  • Align identification and instructional practices with local education improvement efforts so students with disabilities can benefit from them.
  • Improve results for students with disabilities through higher expectations and meaningful access to the general curriculum, to the maximum extent appropriate.
  • Address individual needs in the least restrictive environment for the student.
  • Provide staff with knowledge and training to effectively support students' learning.
  • Focus on teaching and learning.

  • Please call the Special Education Department (525-3060) for additional information and/or click on the Student Support Services tab.
