Special Education Department
Maryville City Schools offer a comprehensive system of service delivery for students with special needs. While pursuing the goal of educating students with their age equivalent peer group to the maximum extent appropriate, teachers, specialists, and parents cooperatively develop an individualized education plan for each student. Educational services are coordinated by 39 special education teachers, 28 of whom have earned a master's degree or higher. Special programs include pre-school instruction, comprehensive development classes, school-to-work programs, and academic instructional classes for all ages. Support services are provided by the school psychologists, speech and language therapists, and a special education counselor. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, vision, hearing, and health services are also furnished by licensed personnel.
