Special Education

It is the policy of the Windber Area School District that every child shall be provided with the opportunity for a free, appropriate, and public education. Based on Gaskins vs. the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, it is required that school districts increase their capacity to educate students with disabilities in regular education classrooms with appropriate supports. Therefore, students with disabilities in the Windber Area School District are educated with students who do not have disabilities to the maximum extent appropriate. The Windber Area School District is committed to providing all necessary supplemental aids and services available to all exceptional students who need them before considering a more restrictive placement. In addition, these services are designed to provide meaningful educational benefits and are delivered in such a manner that avoids stigmatizing students.
