Exceptional Student Services

The Exceptional Student Services Department exists to provide support to ALL students who need additional assistance. The Department’s goal is to collaborate with caregivers and school personnel to remove barriers and provide each student with the skills and support they need to thrive and be prepared for their future. We strive to promote high standards of learning and student well-being (in the areas of academic interventions, health, wellness, and social-emotional learning) in partnership with parents, guardians and the community in the Estes Valley.
