Dupo CUSD 196 Special Education
Dupo Community School District is a stand-only special education district. This means that all services and decisions are based strictly on the needs students in our school district, and there are no other districts, or agencies, in the structure of our department. Our director is an on-site Dupo School District employee.
Our District’s goal is to assure that all children within our district disabilities receive a free and appropriate education as prescribed by state and federal laws. Our special education programs and services are tailored to the unique needs of our students as stated on their IEP’s.
If you would like to discuss the needs of your child, or to request an initial evaluation for services, please contact the special education department.
