Special Education

The Eagle County School District Special Education Department is devoted to serving our students with disabilities. We provide our students with the specially designed instruction and services they need to succeed in school and life. Our service providers and teams are committed to identifying students with disabilities and determining their individual needs. Our Special Education Department supports classroom teachers and special education teachers by providing them with coaching, skills, and materials they need to work with their students with disabilities.

Our staff strives to be responsive to the unique needs of students and families.
