Exceptional Children


Graham County Schools is dedicated to providing a free and appropriate public education to students with identified disabilities. Our mission is to offer our students successful education experiences in the least restrictive environment. To accomplish this task, we partner with schools, families, and the community. Working together we can help all students REACH FOR SUCCESS!

Services for students with disabilities are available in every school in Graham County in accordance with the North Carolina's Procedures Governing Programs and Services for Children with Disabilities.

If you are new to Graham County and have a child who has been receiving special education services, contact the Exceptional Children Teacher for the grade level of your child's school to provide them with documentation of your child’s special needs (i.e., a copy of the student’s Individual Education Plan).  When school is not in session, you may contact myself at the address, phone number, or email address listed to the side.

If you are concerned that your child might be in need of special education and/or related services, please contact your child's teacher or the school's administrator.
