About Early Childhood Special Education

  • Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) provides services for children ages 3–5 with significant developmental delays.  Each of these children will have an Individual Education Program (IEP), which addresses their individual needs. There are ECSE classrooms at the following early childhood centers and elementary sites: Campbell Early Childhood Center, Delaware, Fulbright Early Childhood Center, Gray, Mallory Early Childhood Center, McBride, Shady Dell Early Childhood Center, and Truman. 

    Currently, we cannot enroll students who reside outside the SPS boundaries into the ECSE program.

  • ECSE classes are in half-day sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the 2024-2025 school year.
