Columbia Special Services Department


The Student Services Department is committed to providing a continuum of specialized instruction, related services, and accommodations for students with disabilities that affords them the opportunity to meet the demands of the general education curriculum. Through the collaboration of special and general education teachers and related services staff, we provide individually designed instruction that addresses both academic and social emotional learning. We believe the most successful student outcomes will be the result of collaborative work between the student, parents and staff.
