Our Mission


The mission of Shared Services is to provide high quality special education programs and related services to students with disabilities ages 3-22. Through collaborative efforts between parents, special education and general education teachers, related service providers, and administrators, Shared Services strives to maximize student growth and potential by providing individually designed, research-based instruction.  We ensure the availability of a full continuum of program options to meet the unique needs of all students with disabilities.


We believe:

  • All students with disabilities should be educated in the Least Restricted Environment with their same age peers to the maximum extent appropriate.


  • It is vitally important to stay current and up-to-date with scientifically research-based practices and instruction within Regional District 7 to respond to the educational and social/emotional needs of all students.


  • Strong relationships and collaboration of stakeholders support the development of skills and assets that allow all students to be successful academically, physically, socially, and behaviorally.
