Special Education Services & Supports

Welcome to the Special Education Department info page at Lee Middle School!

The Georgia Department of Education (Division for Special Education Services and Supports) provides necessary infrastructure and supports for leaders, teachers, and families to meet the whole child needs of each student improving student outcomes and school climate resulting in an increased quality of life and workforce ready future. We must commit to effective collaboration across agencies and school-home partnerships to support local school districts in their efforts to provide special education and related services for students with disabilities.

The GaDOE must provide state General Supervision for local school districts to improve educational results and functional outcomes for all children with disabilities and ensure that the requirements of IDEA are met. We believe that all students must have an equitable opportunity for school completion and successful post-secondary outcomes. This department covers services for an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) and 504 services, in which both plans require a meeting with our Special Education Team; along with legal and supporting documentation. If you have any questions or need additional support please reach out to Mrs. Toni Smith at toni.smith@cowetaschools.net Keep calm and thank a teacher,

Mrs. Smith
