Stafford County Public Schools Department of Special Education & Student Services is a fundamental part of the school division as we provide highly specialized programs, services, and supports to our students, faculty, and families. Our department comprises Early Childhood Special Education, K-12 Special Education and Related Services, Instructional, Behavioral & Emotional Support, Section 504, Counseling Programs, and Health Services. We link closely with the Department of Learning and Organizational Development, Assessment and Accountability, Human Resources, and Technology in an effort to maintain high standards of academic excellence and innovative programs for all students.



    Stafford County Public Schools engages in a public awareness campaign in to identify children or youth who may be suspected of having a developmental delay or a disability.  This includes students enrolled in private schools, who are home-schooled, who are highly mobile, migrant, or homeless, or who will be incarcerated in a regional or local jail for more than ten days.  Referrals for special education can be made by anyone concerned with a child's educational performance including a parent, teacher, community agency, or school official. Please contact the Child Find office or Department of Student Services at 540-658-6500.

     The Myers Drive Respite Care Group Home is a local respite program for adults (18+) with an intellectual disability.
