Special Education

Program for Exceptional Children (PEC)


Program Overview

The Colquitt County School District Program for Exceptional Children includes services and supports that sustain the district’s schools in their efforts to provide special education and related services to students with disabilities. These services focus on enhancing student achievement and post-secondary outcomes through the implementation of system activities for students, families, educators, administrators, and other stakeholders. Targeted areas for services and supports include accessible instructional materials, assistive technology, curriculum access and alignment, dropout prevention, family engagement, least restrictive environment, positive behavior supports, and transition. Additional services include ensuring compliance with federal and state regulations for special education, collecting and analyzing data on educational services and outcomes, providing guidance and oversight of the budgets for local, state and federal special education funds, and coordinating dispute resolution requirements as required by state and federal regulations.

Our Philosophy

Special Education services are an integral part of the educational system of the Colquitt County School District (CCSD). We believe  that all students are capable of benefiting from, and have a right to, an educational program that is suitable to their needs. Special Education shares with regular education the basic responsibility of the public educational systems is to ensure that every student has the right to a free, appropriate education.

Child Find Notice

In accordance with IDEA regulations, the Colquitt County School District seeks to ensure that all disabled students (ages 3-21) who are in need of special education within its jurisdiction are identified, located, and evaluated, including those attending private school and home school. Final identification of students with disabilities and programming for such students occurs only after an appropriate evaluation and a determination by a Multidisciplinary Placement Team.

If the "child find" process indicates that a student may require special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education, the student shall be referred to the Multidisciplinary Placement Team to determine the student's eligibility for special education services.

If you know a child with a disability that may need services, please notify:
