The Parkland School District strives to build special programs specifically tailored to the assessed needs of a student and attempts to deliver those programs in the regular education environment as much as possible. The district is committed to creating programs that are integrally involved with and delivered through general education programs. Parkland offers a continuum of services to allow for more independent functioning on the part of the students as they progress through the grades.
The Parkland School District is committed to working with parents to design the program alternative that most appropriately meets the individual needs of students. All Parkland special education programs and services are in compliance with state and federal laws governing this area. The district operates a majority of the programs for its students with special needs. Some students will participate in programs operated by the Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit.
