Special Education: A Service, Not A Place

Our team in the Student Services Office works collaboratively with school and division leaders, teachers, students, and families to provide the tools, guidance, supports, and services needed to ensure access and success for students with disabilities.  Waynesboro Public Schools is committed to providing a free appropriate public education for all students with disabilities by understanding student needs through data and addressing those needs with high-yield instructional strategies.  If you have questions about special education in Waynesboro Public Schools, please contact the Student Services Office at 540-946-4600, extension 22.
