Special Education Leadership


Help all students reach their full potential, in the least restrictive environment.

The CESA 6 Special Education Leadership and Support Services team provides a variety of administrative and support services and structures tailored to the needs of students with disabilities. The team provides each district and each building principal with a team of administrative and support staff to assist the district in the provision of quality services to children, provide direction support to staff, and implement the Special Education process and procedures as called for in IDEA and Chapter 115.
