About SSD's Schools

  • SSD provides special education services to students in a variety of placements, which are governed by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Services are based entirely on a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Placements range from SSD teachers providing special education services in the student’s home school district to attendance at an SSD special education school or program.

    SSD also operates North Technical High School and South Technical High School, which offer students experiential learning opportunities in more than 30 different programs. Our mission is college and career readiness – a commitment to preparing students for the increasing demands of the 21st century workforce and ensuring that they are fully prepared for college and careers. Dynamic programs like Pharmacy Science and a Pre-Professional Health Sciences Academy have joined the more traditional programs such as Automotive Technology and Welding.
