The Department of Special Education for the Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools serves students with disabilities, ages 2-21, who are found eligible for special education and related services by a multidisciplinary team. Services for identified students are provided in the least restrictive environment in a manner consistent with all applicable federal and state regulations.
Students receive a variety of services determined by their specific needs. Services include consultation, support, and direct instruction in a variety of learning environments. Parental involvement is an essential component during the evaluation process and development of each student’s Individualized Educational Program (IEP). Upon successful completion of a prescribed program, students will earn a diploma (advanced, standard, applied studies) or a certificate of completion.
Child Find ensures Williamsburg-James City County children, ages 2-21, inclusive, who are suspected of or identified as having a disability and in need of special education and related services are identified, evaluated and provided with a free and appropriate public education.
Children with suspected delays in communication, motor skills, vision, hearing, cognitive development, social-emotional and behavioral skills should call the Central Point of Entry for the WJCC Bright Beginnings program at (757) 565-9363.
