    The Wichita Public Schools provides a continuum of special education services for students aged 3 to 21.  By implementing a Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS), teachers and support staff will ensure that students receive educational benefit in the least restrictive environment, providing a coordinated system of Special Education and related services for students with disabilities designed to meet the unique student’s needs and increase opportunities for student achievement and post-secondary success. 

    The division of Special Education includes offices organized to provide centralized support and management of the provision of service for students with disabilities.  The current organizational structure is designed to bring services and supports closer to the schools within an integrated service model.  It realigns services to promote collaboration and implementation of an integrated support model of Special Education and related services.  For more information on related services, see Student Support Services.
