The Johnston Special Education Advisory Committee is a group of parents/guardians, professionals, and concerned citizens who have come together to advocate for all children in the Town of Johnston who have special education needs. One of the committee’s most important functions is that of providing advice and support to parents whose children are either in a special education program or are being evaluated for special services.
Special Education Services
Federal and state regulations that require the district to provide a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for students with disabilities govern the Johnston Public School System.
The Special Education Department has in place a referral and evaluation process that addresses each child who might be in need of Special Education Services.
When a determination is made that a child qualifies for Special Education Services, we have a range of services and programs to meet the unique needs of each child.
