David Douglas Student Services

Who We Are: As a special education team, we value consultation and collaboration to create the most effective support system for students. We do this by providing materials, strategies, interventions, expertise, experience and modeling for staff. We do this so we can support students in their least restrictive placements and through transitions.

Our Mission: Together, we prepare students with disabilities to graduate with the skills needed to participate in a meaningful life in our community.

Our Vision: Our students with disabilities will become productive, safe, caring and valued members of our community.
