Special Education

The New Diana Independent School District is committed to providing students who have specialized learning needs an educational program that supports each student in reaching his/her full potential. The instruction offered by highly qualified, certified special education teachers and licensed related service personnel is changed in content, methodology, and/or delivery of instruction to address the unique needs of the student which result from the student’s disability. The goal of special education is to ensure access of the student to the general curriculum, so that the student may meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the school district that apply to all children.

Child Find
