WMPCS provides a continuum of special education and related services to meet the individual needs of students.  Services include educational, physical, speech, occupational and life skills development and education.

Do not tell them how to do it. Show them how to do it and do not say a word. If you tell them, they will watch your lips move. If you show them, they will want to do it themselves. – Maria Montessori

WMPCS provides a continuum of special education and related services to meet the individual needs of students.

In Public Schools of North Carolina, the Exceptional Children’s (EC) Division provides local units with detailed procedures for the delivery of special education services. These rules and regulations are detailed and found on the NC Department of Public Instruction website for its Exceptional Children’s Division. Children who meet all of the specified criteria outlined in the Policies may be entitled to special education services.

If you are new to WMPCS or have a child who has been receiving special education services at another school, contact Amanda Holton, the school’s EC Coordinator.

Child Find

The Exceptional Children’s Department of WMPCS, in compliance with Project Child Find, conducts evaluations or referrals, if warranted, for those children and/or adult students who may have learning problems in the areas of cognition, communication, social and emotional and motor functioning.  Evaluations are available to preschool children aged 3-5, through the Beaufort County School System. 

 

Children or adult students who are found eligible for special education and related services are entitled to a free and appropriate special education program.
