Curriculum & Programs


Spangdahlem Elementary School provides special education support to students who are found eligible based on a specific area of need. We have services available to support physical therapy, occupational therapy, school based counseling, speech therapy, vision impairment, hearing impairment, and academic support. These services are based on a student's needs as determined by a committee that includes the parents, classroom teacher, administration, special education teacher and related service providers. If you have questions about the program, available services, or concerns for your student, call the main office.

We also provide a Pre-School for Children with Disabilities (PSCD) classroom for 3-5 year old students found eligible through the Child Find Program. If you concerns about your child's development from age 3-5 you can contact the principal.
