Welcome to the Special Education Department

  • Winchester Public School’s Mission is to provide specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. WPS provides a continuum of services for students with disabilities, PreK through high school, found eligible to receive special education services. Identifying a student as eligible for special education services is a carefully managed process guided by State and Federal regulations.

    Individuals with disabilities are valued members of the school community and  entitled to access all opportunities. The Office of Special Education actively promotes the inclusion of all students in the school community to provide access to their same age peers.

    Through collaboration of students, families, community partners and employees, our mission is to prepare our students to lead full and productive lives.


  • Your Voice Matters


    The Virginia Department of Education is required to report to the U.S. Department of Education the "Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities."  This survey is not intended to measure satisfaction with the special education program process.  Rather, this survey is asking you to reflect upon your experiences during the 2017-2018 school year.

    It is important to note that your response to this survey is being collected anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child.  The online survey will also provide you with an opportunity to address, in more detail, specific experiences with your school during the 2017-2018 school year.  Please click on the link below to complete the survey.
