     Office of Special Services

  • The vision of the Berkeley County Office of Special Services is to ensure positive outcomes for students through innovative instruction, a strength-based focus, and embracing individuality.

    We make a difference--one student, one classroom, one school, and one family at a time.

    In collaboration with general education, we will utilize a growth-mindset as we meet each opportunity and challenge for success. We will use communication as a tool for sharing ideas, posing questions for improvement, and problem-solving solutions for our student-centered outcomes. In this process, we will strive to be creative with new approaches in innovation and invention. We will encourage one another to link learning across disciplines and bring new ideas for solving problems.

    In keeping with the district mission, we strive to empower all students for success.

    Priority initiatives include:

    • High quality specially designed instruction provided using standards-based instruction, personalized learning, and innovative programs.
    • Positive outcomes for students aligned with the system of Results-Driven Accountability.
    • Coordinated systems of support in all BCSD classrooms for academic and social/emotional.

    We consider it a privilege to serve our children with disabilities to accomplish the vision and mission of the Berkeley County School District.
