Special Education Services: Our Purpose

  • Athens City Schools provides a comprehensive array of services to meet the needs of students, ages three through twenty-one, who have been identified as disabled. Services provided to any given child are based upon that child's individual needs.  Our mandate is to assure that each child receives a free, appropriate, public education.  Special education services are designed to provide the supports necessary to allow a child to derive meaningful benefit from his or her educational experience.
