Special Education Parents Guide

 

Quincy Public Schools recognizes that many students have learning challenges. To meet these needs, we offer a wide array of programs – everything from extra assistance in a regular classroom setting to substantially separate intensive, therapeutic environments. Intervention can begin as early as pre-school and continue on through high school.

We also offer several documents which can help you understand the special education process and goals:
