The North Shore Special Education Department is dedicated to ensuring that all students with disabilities are afforded equal opportunity to advance their human potential as members of North Shore’s community of learners. Furthermore, the department is committed to the Shared Valued Outcomes (SVO) and utilizes its resources so that disabled students of the community have the opportunity to actualize as committed individuals, collaborators, innovators, problem solvers, communicators, and thinkers. The North Shore Special Education Department offers a range of quality instructional supports and services designed to meet the individual needs of students while providing meaningful access, participation and progress in the general curriculum. The department’s goals are closely aligned to the three pillars of the North Shore Schools Strategic Plan, which underscore Teaching & Learning, Equity for All Learners, and Social-Emotional Learning. Our continuum of programs and services afford students with disabilities enriched opportunities to thrive in an educational environment that actively promotes continuous academic, social, and personal growth.
