Special Education

All K-12 New Orleans public schools, and most public early childhood programs, are required to meet your child’s needs as identified on his / her Individualized Education Plan or 504 Plan. We encourage you to reach out to schools and programs directly to ask more about their special education services and staff.

You can research your options by viewing individual school profiles, and you can also learn more about special education programming here.
