    Special Education

    The Special Education department at John Hay Elementary has long been considered one of the very best in the district. Our experienced staff works collaboratively with school and district leaders, teachers, students, and families to provide the tools, guidance, supports, and services needed to ensure access and success for students with disabilities.

    In addition to our exceptional programs, the school's administration and staff have made significant progress in the past year to create a thoroughly inclusive environment school wide. Last January, a leadership position was created on the parent board to represent the interests of the Special Education students and staff. Working together, school events have been made truly accessible, featuring sensory friendly modifications for all students who require them. Our administration and staff have fully embraced this issue and the progress has been inspiring.
