McDowell County Schools Office of Special Education

    At McDowell County Schools, our staff and administration are committed to unlocking the potential of students with disabilities and exceptionalities every day.  We work hard to ensure that our students have success within the academic setting to help promote meaningful life experiences and transition into productive careers.  We are diligent in identifying children, ages three through twenty-one years, who may have developmental disabilities or exceptionalities and tailor their education to their needs by providing supplemental supports and interventions to ensure increased academic success.  If you have any questions about how to develop your child’s potential feel free to contact us at the Office of Special Education at 304.436.8441.
