The Littleton Public Schools provides, or arranges for the provision of each of the elements of the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students in need of specialized instruction from the age of three through age twenty‑one. The Littleton Public Schools ensures that a continuum of services and placements are available to meet the needs of all students with disabilities. Services are provided to meet the unique needs of students and to develop their individual educational potential, so that they can successfully transition to college, post-secondary training or careers,with the goal of leading healthy and productive lives. Special education services are designed to eliminate achievement gaps, minimize the impact of the student’s disability and maximize their achievement, independence and participation in the community.
The Littleton Public School District maintains the belief that all students should be included to the maximum extent appropriate in general education classrooms and in the life of our schools and community. We believe that all students can learn together with appropriate support. We recognize that students learn best when all are included and viewed as individuals with distinct abilities, strengths and needs.
