Our Approach to Special Education
The Roaring Fork Schools’ Special Education Department is dedicated to educating every student through programming that honors and respects the diversity of all learners. We work as a team with family, teachers, students, and service providers to provide specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parents, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability.
