Special Education

  • Springfield Public Schools Special Education Services department provides staff, resources, and supports throughout the district depending on the needs of students in each building. The broad range of special education services and supports allows most of our children with disabilities to be served in the student's home school. Regular educators and special educators work together with parents to teach children with and without disabilities in a variety of settings in each school.


  • We believe all individuals have potential and we must commit to the following behaviors:

    • Embrace the needs of the whole child.
    • Create, communicate and demonstrate high expectations.
    • Inspire and instill a passion for learning.
    • Demonstrate flexibility, agility and adaptability.
    • Cultivate community ownership.
    • Maintain a safe and secure learning environment.
    • Engage all staff to positively 
      impact student success.
    • Foster a culture that supports and engages high-quality teachers and leaders
