Services for Children with Disabilities
The Howard-Suamico School District works with families and students to ensure they are provided
an appropriate public education for students with disabilities. The District provides programming for all disability areas including autism, cognitive disabilities, specific learning disabilities, emotional behavioral disabilities and other health impairments. Programming is provided in the least restrictive environment.
Services for the hearing and visually impaired are provided through CESA-Cooperative Educational Service Agency consultants or in cooperation with Green Bay Area Public Schools.
