Special Education

Mission Statement
The mission of the special education department is to work in partnership with all other Hinsdale South departments to educate students who experience disabilities that affect their learning, support their academic achievement and self-reflection in the learning process, foster the development of each student’s character, and assist students in their preparation for post-secondary education, careers and community contributions.

Department Goals

  • Students will meet or exceed academic/learning standards. 
  • Students will understand, apply, evaluate, and adapt learning strategies to acquire knowledge and demonstrate learning.
  • Students will meet transition goals addressing competencies for post-secondary education, independent living, community participation and employment.
  • Students will become proficient self –advocates, demonstrating effective communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills.
