Watauga County Schools
Exceptional Children's Program


 
Welcome

We hope that you will find many helpful resources here to aid in our collaborative effort to educate students with disabilities in Watauga County.

Our goal is to provide appropriate educational opportunities to all children in our district who have a disability and are in need of special education services. 

Watauga County Schools offer the full continuum of services in the least restrictive environment for all students eligible for special education. Programs and services range from Student and Teacher Consultative and Co-Taught Classrooms to Specialized Classrooms. Each of our schools provide services for students with mild disabilities.  One school, Hardin Park, houses programs for students with mild, moderate and severe disabilities. Watauga High School provides the full continuum.

Related services are provided when required to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education.
