Special Education

  • Chapel Hill ISD provides specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities.  This includes adapting as necessary to meet the appropriate needs of an eligible student, the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address the student's unique needs and to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum. 

    We Believe:

    •that all children can learn and that instructional services should be determined by the individual needs of students.
    •that students with disabilities will be educated with their non-disabled peers as much as possible.
    •that given appropriate educational services, students with disabilities will achieve academic performance commensurate with their non-disabled peers.
    •that students with disabilities should have access to the total school program, including non-academic and extra-curricular activities, and that services delivered should meet standards of accessibility, accountability and quality.
    •that parents are valued partners in the educational process and that they should be provided with the necessary training and education to ensure full participation.
    •that collaboration among all stakeholders is a critical element in providing quality services to students with disabilities.
    •that intervention assistance is a key prerequisite to locating and identifying students who may have a disability and that should be appropriately identified.
    •that quality staff development, based upon student data, research-based practices and promising practices is of critical importance to providing quality services for students with disabilities.

    As the Director of Special Education, it is both an honor and a privilege to serve the students, families, community and staff in the New Chapel Hill School District. I am dedicated to partner with you in order to prepare all learners for their next step in their educational experience and to initiate practices that empower each and every student to achieve excellence.

    I am committed to promoting a caring community of professionals that meet the diverse academic, behavioral, emotional and social needs of all of our students in a respectful and positive environment. Communication and collaboration are key ingredients in providing a successful experience for all of our students. It is my hope to work together with parents and staff in order to support open and honest communication for the benefit of our students with diverse needs.

    Our goal is to educate each student in the least restrictive environment with the supports and services necessary to ensure the success of the student. Please contact the Special Education Department if you have any questions or comments.
