-Preparing Students for Success-


Meeting the needs of students with disabilities is a continuing goal of the Roanoke
City Public Schools. The first class for students with special needs was
established in 1930. Since that time, there has been a consistent plan to develop and
implement a continuum of programs that appropriately address the needs of all
students with disabilities. While every effort is made to educate all students in the
"mainstream" of public education, it is recognized that a variety of special programs
is also necessary to serve all students with disabilities. Since the establishment of the first
special education class, many new programs and services have been added,
expanded, and modified to meet the needs of our students with disabilities.
