Exceptional Children's Week Mar 6-10, 2023

Please join the DeKalb County School District in celebrating Exceptional Children’s Week, March 6-10, 2023.

Each year, the District collaborates with the Council for Exceptional Children, a professional organization that promotes the advancement and education of all exceptional persons, to promote awareness and increase knowledge of the accomplishments of exceptional students and of the programs and services provided to students with exceptional needs.

This year’s theme is “Power in Our Differences”. According to the Council for Exceptional Children, special education focuses on providing individualized education, related services, and specialized accommodations so that students with special needs make great strides, prepare for transition, and as a result, achieve academic and life-long personal success, and independence.

Please take this opportunity to honor children and youth with exceptionalities, and the professionals who serve them!
