A Message from the Assistant Director of Special Education

The Iberia Parish Special Education Department provides quality services designed to meet the individual needs of students while ensuring equity and meaningful educational opportunities.  Our goal is to maximize the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical potential of students in a least restrictive environment. We foster respect and appreciation for cultural diversity through collaboration among staff, students, families, and the community.

The Special Education Department is responsible for the general supervision of identification, location, evaluation, placement, and services for students who are suspected of being disabled and for the provision of FAPE to students with disabilities within Iberia Parish Public Schools’ jurisdiction.

Our work is centered on core beliefs and a vision that all students will complete high school having attained life, academic, and vocational skills, making them career- and college-ready.

The success of our educational programs is dependent upon the participation and commitment of all involved.  

     “Every child can learn.  Just not on the same day or in the same way.”                         ~ George Evans
