Special Education – Our Vision and Commitment to You
Special education is an individualized set of services and supports. It is not a place. In BVSD, we believe that every student is a general education student first and we provide the necessary accommodations, modifications and services to the student to ensure they can access their right to a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE). We are determined to see that our students with disabilities become successful adults engaged in the community.
To stay updated on what’s happening in special education in BVSD along with opportunities for parent education, youth programs and community events, please sign up to receive BVSD Special Education Parent News
BVSD encourages students, staff and families to use Respectful Language that is person-centered and not disability-centered. For details on how that looks, download this Person First flier from the Colorado Special Education Advisory Committee.
