Career & Technical Education
Special Education is specifically designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability.
The purpose of Special Education is to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that provides the services needed to meet their individual needs, while allowing them the opportunity to participate in educational programs and activities with their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent possible. Navarro ISD offers a full continuum of special education services designed to meet the individual needs of these students.
Referral for special education assessment is made by the Student Support Committee, which meets to determine appropriate interventions when a student is struggling academically or behaviorally. Counselors on each campus can be contacted to set up a Student Support Committee meeting.
