Caroline County Public Schools believes strongly that all children are entitled to educational opportunities. Furthermore, we believe children with disabilities are more alike than different from other children. It is our mission to ensure all children’s needs are served in Caroline County classrooms.
CCPS Approach to Special Education
- All children with disabilities deserve a free and appropriate educational program that recognizes
individual needs and differences.
- All children with disabilities will be provided special education programs and services at no cost
to the individual, parent, or legal guardian.
- We use a system of early intervention to identify students with disabilities and give them a
strong start in public education.
- We leverage interagency partnerships to deliver additional services and programs to students
- We maintain a high standard of qualification and evaluation for our administrators, teachers,
and specialists who work with children with disabilities.
The term “student with a disability” means a student, ages three through 21, evaluated as having a specific learning disability, other health impairment, autism, emotional disability, speech or language impairment, visual impairment including blindness, deafness, hearing impairment, deaf-blindness, orthopedic impairment, intellectual disability, traumatic brain injury, multiple disabilities, and/or developmental delay; and who, because of that impairment, needs special education and related services.
Special Education Citizen’s Advisory Committee (SECAC)
The Special Education Citizen’s Advisory Committee seeks meaningful input from parents, community partners, service providers, educators, and administrators on local issues that affect the education and wellbeing of children with disabilities. SECAC operates as a partnership at the local level.
Current Caroline County SECAC Chairperson: Gayland Carlisle
