Welcome to the Office of Special Services home page.  Our office provides support to the students and staff of the district.  Our staff is dedicated to the continued improvement of services to provide a productive, enjoyable, and enriching experience for all students. While serving children with disabilities is a primary function of this office, this is best achieved by improving educational services to all. We coordinate our services with the school personnel, school counselors, school nurses, the Talented and Gifted program staff, as well as the community agencies which serve our students.

Special Services Vision

The ACSD special services department seeks to provide a meaningfully inclusive learning environment that highlights individual strengths, focuses on growth, and nurtures lifelong independence through collaborative, data-based instructional decisions.
