Special Education

The Berlin Public School System is strongly committed to supporting students in their least restricted environment. The special education services provided to our students have been developed to support this concept. We believe that a continuum of placement options must be provided to meet the unique and individual needs of our students. Students may be serviced in a variety of settings which include: co-teaching within the general education classroom, learning center, semi-self-contained classroom, self-contained classroom, transition within the community, and out of district placements.
