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.


Attention Parents of Homeschool and Private School Students!!

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that the local school system discuss with parents available services for students identified with a disability or suspected of having a disability. If you would like to consider services for students with disabilities through a formal meeting or through conference call, please contact Dr. Vannetta Melton, Special Education Director, 311 South East Street, Kingsland, GA 31548 for more information. 

Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Ashley Cribbs on being selected as the 2018 Camden County Schools Special Education Teacher of the Year.  Mrs. Cribbs was recently recognized by the Coastal Georgia Learning Resources System at a ceremony in Richmond Hill.  She teaches at Crooked River Elementary School and is known for making each student feel appreciated and building their self-esteem to achieve beyond their documented ability levels.
