Columbia Public Schools Early Childhood Elementary Middle School 6 -7 Junior High 8 -9 ... CPS Home Welcome to the Special Education home page for the Columbia Public Schools. My name is Dr. Kim Ratcliffe and I direct the Special Education Department. The creation of the Columbia Public School web site for Special Education is the result of many months of work by many persons. A committee of parents and public school staff determined the purpose of the Special Education web site to be three-fold: 1) to promote community awareness of the abilities of students with disabilities: 2) to provide a parent source to direct information on special education process, services, and supports; and 3) to provide parents, teachers, and other community members a link to other resources related to educating children with disabilities. A special feature of the web site is the "Day in the Life of a child with a Disability". At least four times a year a student will be featured. We are humbled by the courage and tenacity exhibited each day by students with disabilities as they overcome physical, sensory, and learning challenges top meet their educational goals. We invite you to begin your exploration of our Special Education web site by sharing a day of Megan's life in middle school. We offer a special word of thanks to the committee responsible for the vision that resulted in this web site.
