The Department of Exceptional Children for Person County Schools believes in the basic operational principle of providing a quality education to ALL children. In collaboration with students, parents, regular educators, and our community partners, students with disabilities will be provided specially designed, research-based instruction. By providing excellence in programming by highly qualified staff in the least restrictive environment, we will promote cognitive, physical, social, vocational, and emotional development. The ultimate goal is for students to gain knowledge and access resources in order to successfully transition to higher education or a career and become productive and contributing citizens in society.
