Special Education

Welcome to the Wayne County Special Education Department.  Our website offers an overview of the exceptionalities, services, and staff available for Students with Disabilities in our school system.  We are committed to providing our students a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) as outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 

Our focus is and will always be to meet the individual needs of our students with disabilities in addressing their academic, behavioral, and social skills. 

We believe in our system’s mission to empower all students to their highest levels of achievement. 

Please use our website as a resource if you are considering Wayne County to serve the future needs of your child.
