Dr. Lou Ann Tanner-Jones,

The Columbia Public Schools Special Services Department provides staff, resources, and supports throughout the district depending on the needs of students in each building.  The broad range of special education services and supports allows most of our children with disabilities to be served in the student's home school.  In the past, special educators were an isolated system of support.  Today, regular educators and special educators work together with parents to teach children with and without disabilities in a variety of settings in each school.
