Exceptional Children Vision Statement

Special Services in Hampton County School District 2 is committed to providing all children with disabilities a quality education. We believe that all children deserve a chance to reach their full potential.  Within the walls of our department exists a team that embraces the social, emotional, cognitive, and developmental needs of students with disabilities.  The voices of our department echo the contents of the shared vision:  “By the end of the school year, special services in Hampton County School District 2 will provide FAPE (Free Appropriate Public Education) for our students with disabilities while meeting their individual needs.”
