WHAS Crusade for Children grant

Franklin County receives WHAS Crusade for Children grant in the amount of $46,569.00MORE +
Posted on Monday, September 25, 2017


Franklin County's Special Education Program employs professional trained staff to assess educational strengths and needs of students; diagnose specific learning and behavior problems; evaluate mental and emotional problems which may interfere with school learning; confer with parents and teachers to interpret and discuss the result of psychological evaluations; and refer students to community resources when special help is needed beyond the school level.

It is our mission to serve students in the least restrictive environment. For most students, special education will be a supportive service. Even with those students who will primarily receive their education within special classes, efforts are made to integrate them as much as possible in mainstream activities.
