Montesano School District

Excellence in Education

Montesano is a community where people learn,
grow and work together.  With high-quality
instruction, every student, regardless of race, class,
language, or disability, can succeed. 

Special Education


The Montesano School District Special Education Program serves approximately 200 students ranging from birth to twenty-one years. These services are provided by special education teachers, including a birth to three teacher, paraeducators, counselors, a school psychologist, a speech-language pathologist,  an occupational therapist, and a physical therapist.  Students with disabilities are served in the least restrictive environment possible as specified in federal and state laws. As a result, special needs students participate in the general education classroom with the general education curriculum, as much as possible.
