Special Education

The Las Vegas City Schools strive to allow specialized education based upon the individual needs of each child as prescribed and defined by the Federal Individual with Disabilities Improvement Act and the State Exceptional Children's Education Act. Along with the expertise of our special education teachers, we also provide services from our paraprofessionals, nurses, mental health providers, speech, occupational, and physical therapists.

Mission:

The Department of Special Education's goal is to provide adequate services to our students with disabilities to help them have independent lives and post secondary success.
