Special Populations

 

Departmental Responsibilities

The McKinney Independent School District’s Special Populations Department believes that all individuals are born with inherent value and that all individuals need to feel safe and secure in their learning environment. Further, we believe that all individuals deserve an environment that is conducive to mental, physical and spiritual growth. We also believe that education is a shared responsibility and that personal relationships, especially with parents and adult students are vital to learning. As a result, the Special Populations Department seeks to develop educational programs for students with disabilities which are relevant and adaptable to the student’s needs.

Responsible for supervising and coordinating activities for the Office of Special Populations including Special Education Services, 504, and Dyslexia.

For general questions about any of our services, including 504 and Dyslexia, please e-mail: misdsped.
