Special Education

The Avoyelles Parish School District (APSD) provides a continuum of supports and services for students with disabilities to help them access their education. Special education services are available to students with disabilities who qualify for an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Each student’s program is individually determined to meet their unique needs in the least restrictive environment. Our educators are passionate about supporting students, which is translated into very rich learning environments.  Our District is committed to supporting the needs of the students and families that make up our school district. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our department.
