The School District of Oconee County Special Education Services Department is tasked with overseeing a full continuum of special education programs and services for students aged 3 through age 21. Our team includes special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, social workers, psychologists, occupational and physical therapists, registered behavior technicians, and paraeducators. A vital part of our program is an ongoing partnership with parents as we collaborate closely to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) for students who are eligible for special education.
