The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) provides Special Education services to approximately 1,470 students with disabilities, ages 3 to 21, under the Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Education Act of 2004 (IDEIA) based on our December 2018 Child Count. Our district provides a continuum of Special Education and Related Services to students attending public schools, community based-day cares, as well as private and home schools.
The Office of Special Services supports the vision and mission of the KCSD by providing support to school personnel to assist in the education of students with disabilities. Further, the Office of Special Services provides leadership in program planning for students with disabilities in KCSD. This includes supervision of the district’s special education program, related services, psychological services and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
The Office of Special Services is here to provide support to families in our community by conducting Child Find activities (community and school-based) and educational evaluations within our schools. We ensure the provision of special education and related services to children with disabilities in our district.
