Welcome to the Department of Special Education

  • Children are special and so is their education in New Caney ISD.

    Our Special Education Beliefs:

    • Every Student Can!   With proper support and opportunities, we believe that all students can learn and succeed.
    • Learning differences and disabilities are to be respected. 
    • Our parents of children with special needs are viewed as valuable partners.
    • Collaboration between special education and general education working together is essential to the success of our students.
    • Special education services should Minimize the impact of a disability while maximizing opportunities for students to participate in the general curriculum.
    • Empowering special needs students by allowing them to participate in decisions affecting their education.
    • Investing in the future of our students by fueling self efficiency and helping them successfully transition into higher education and/or employment.
    • Special education staff are valued professional members of a school team.
    • Provision of services for students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment (LRE) is a critical component of their education.
    • The Admission/Review/Dismissal (ARD) process is used to determine which services a student needs.  Parents, teachers, administrators, assessment and other related staff all work together to develop the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP).  The ARD process can be found here.
