Special Education

Throughout the geographical area of Kern County, there are students who require special education classes and services uniquely designed to address their disability. Often the student has a low incidence disability or the student’s needs can not be met in a typical classroom setting because of their specialized learning needs.

The programs and services provided by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Office, Division of Special Education Services, is a collaborative effort on the part of the parents, local school district representatives and staff members to provide a learning environment and the specialists that are required to enhance the child’s learning. Programs and services are provided to children from birth through age 21.
