|Klamath County School District’s Special Education Services Department is responsible for identifying educationally handicapped children (birth through age 21) and providing appropriate, specially designed instruction (special education) for those students. These services are provided across the district - geographically, Oregon's largest - with an emphasis on service in the local communities.
Within each KCSD community our department provides the full spectrum of special education services including evaluation, collaborative IEP development, instructional services, transportation, and access to the general curriculum as best fits the needs of each student. Our district also operates several specialized programs which can provide more intense support for special needs students who have greater difficulty accessing the general curriculum.
KCSD Special Services Department includes a top-tier certified, licensed staff: speech pathologists, school psychologist, evaluation specialists, an Autism consultant, occupational therapist, nurses, and special education teachers (K-12). Together with our general education teachers, administration, support staff, and parents we build teams that plan for student success. District Special Services contacts include the following:
