    Sherman ISD has over 800 students qualifying for special education and related services. Our teachers, instructional assistants, diagnosticians, speech pathologists, school psychologists, and other related service specialists are dedicated to providing exceptional individualized services to students. According to both federal and state law, the goal of special education is to help students with disabilities meet the same levels of success as students without disabilities. Furthermore, the law requires that each student becomes employable, if possible, when they leave the educational setting. Employability may include opportunities to pursue post-high school education. Each program and service provided through special education is devoted to these goals. 

    The special education department is not able to reach these goals alone. We value the partnerships we have built with our parents/guardians in this effort. We encourage all visitors to navigate through our resources within this site. If any of our staff may be of service to you, please contact us. We hope you enjoy learning more about the people and services our Special Education Department provides in the Sherman Independent School District.
