Special Education

Welcome to the WFISD Special Education Department! We are dedicated to providing exceptional educational opportunities and support for students with diverse learning needs within our district.

In WFISD, we believe that every child deserves an inclusive and nurturing learning environment that fosters their unique abilities. Our Special Education Department is committed to ensuring that students with special needs receive the individualized attention, resources, and services they require to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our team of highly qualified special education professionals, including teachers, therapists, and support staff, work collaboratively to develop and implement individualized education plans (IEPs) for each student. These plans are tailored to address their specific strengths, challenges, and learning goals. We strive to empower our students by fostering independence, self-advocacy skills, and a lifelong love for learning.

In addition to providing specialized instruction, our department also focuses on fostering a sense of belonging and inclusivity. We actively promote collaboration between students, families, educators, and community members to create a supportive network that enhances the overall well-being of our students. We understand that the success of our students relies on strong partnerships and open communication.

Motto: Educate, Nurture, Prepare


  • Educate students with special needs utilizing research-based curriculum, flexibly designed to meet the unique needs of each individual learner
  • Nurture students by providing a safe environment where their academic, behavioral and social needs may be met
  • Prepare students to achieve by equipping them with the education and skills needed to successfully adapt and adjust to our ever-changing world


The vision of the Wichita Falls Special Education Department is to educate students with special needs today, nurture their dreams of tomorrow, and prepare them for an ever changing world.
