Exceptional Children’s Program

“A disability is not an inability”

“When a student does better, they try harder”

“All students can reach their full potential; they just may take different paths”.

Our EC Program encompasses identification and a full continuum of special education programs and related services for students who are eligible for special education. We provide exemplary educational services for students with disabilities by implementing individualized education plans utilizing research- and standards-based interventions and instruction. We believe that all students can and will reach their full potential.

Destruction of EC Files

According to school policy, Woods Charter School hereby gives notice that special education records are no longer needed to provide educational services to individuals with disabilities who have left the school and have reached the age of 25 years. The school will destroy these special education records, once public notice has been given, on September 1, 2023. Destruction of these records reduces risks of improper and unauthorized disclosure of personal information.

Any person wishing  to review  or retain his or her file should contact the School’s EC Coordinator, Kathleen St.Lawrence at by September 1, 2023.
