Welcome to Exceptional Student Services with Santa Fe Public Schools. Students determined to be eligible for Specialized education have a right to a Free Appropriate Public Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). At Santa Fe Public Schools we serve as an artery of support to schools, students, and families providing specialized instruction, consultation, specialists, related services and general support. We believe that student success can be procured from successful partnerships, honest and comprehensive dialogue, and positivism.

“Congress finds the following: Disability is a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes the right of individuals to participate in or contribute to society. Improving educational results for children with disabilities is an essential element of our national policy of ensuring equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities.”
