Our Mission

It is the mission of Camden County Schools' Special Education Department to help ensure success for each student with a disability by providing a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. The Special Education Department promotes exemplary teaching practices and provides a full continuum of quality programs that create enhanced learning experiences designed to meet each child's specialized needs.
