Exceptional Children's Program
The Exceptional Children’s department of Gates County Public Schools serves students from ages 3 to 21 based on the Federal Law IDEA and the North Carolina State Law 1500-01 through 1500-09/ Article IX. We offer the full continuum of services to meet the needs of each student to enable them the ability to access a free and appropriate public education. We also provide related services that include, but are not limited to speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. Students follow the North Carolina Standard Course of Study or the North Carolina Extended Content Standards.
The EC teachers, staff and related services personnel provide specific support to students and parents with the implementation of the IEP goals and objectives. The Exceptional Children's department of Gates County Public Schools strives to offer a variety of opportunities for the students to have a successful school career.
