Lowell Public Schools will provide the instruction necessary to help students with disabilities close the gap between their skills and their grade level expectations.


    Special education support and services should not be viewed as a separate model, but instead as part of the continuum of supports, services and interventions created to ensure that the educational environment is responsive to the diverse learning needs of all students. Working together staff can ensure equal opportunity, full participation and increased outcomes for all learners, including students with disabilities.
