Program Statement & Mission

     In St. Vrain’s Special Education programming, our mission is to provide data-driven and instructionally appropriate IEP goal support for students with Significant Support Needs that will help lead to fulfilling lives of independence and meaning as our students transition to their post-secondary goals.
