    Welcome to the

    Special Education Department

     

    Princeton City School District empowers each student for college, career and life success.  The Special Education Department is committed to ensuring that each child leaves school each day feeling successful.  We do this by providing individualized supports, a continuum of service delivery options, facilitating academic and social development and maintaining dignity and respect for each student. 

     

    A collaborative effort is required between parents, support staff, and regular educators in order to facilitate the independence and success of each student. 

     

    Princeton's’ Special Education Department offers a continuum of services to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities.  We promote inclusion by providing these services in the least restrictive environment (LRE) which means to the greatest extent possible, appropriate services are provided in the general education environment.  

     

    Princeton City School District utilizes a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model to identify the strengths and needs of struggling learners.  The MTSS model focuses on collaboration between the core members of the student’s team including parents.  This student-focused process analyzes data relative to identified issues of concern, sets individual goals, brainstorms options for intervention, develops an action plan and gathers data to determine the effectiveness of the interventions provided.
