    Special Education

    The Cascade School District provides a wide range of programs and services for infants and students with disabilities, from birth through age 21. Once a child or young adult is identified as eligible for special education, the district provides education that is specially designed to meet the student's unique needs and ultimately aimed at preparing the student for a post-high school academic setting, employment and independent living. Special education is provided at no cost to the student or parent.
