Special Education Programs

Parents and guardians are key elements in collaborative educational teams responsible for determining eligibility for special education and making all decisions related to the corresponding services. The special education process is governed by state and federal regulations, as well as specific APS special education policies and procedures, and requires informed parental consent. Here you will find information about the Individualized Education Program (IEP), the 504 Plan and accommodations, and details about services for gifted students and virtual learning. Information related to Special Education services can be found on the Special Education or Parent Resource Center webpages or by emailing or calling 703-228-7239.
