About the Office of Special Education
This office administers both the state's Exceptional Children’s Educational Act (ECEA) and the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for children with disabilities. It is a resource to teachers, administrators, and parents of students with exceptional educational needs due to disability, or learners who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse or have some other special need. The Office of Special Education is one of three offices within the Exceptional Student Services Unit (along with the Office of Facility Schools and the Office of Gifted Education).
The Indicator Profiles for fiscal year 2016-2017 have been posted for each administrative unit within Colorado. These reports to the public, a mixture of performance and compliance indicators, are on each AU's performance compared to state targets and state performances.
