Special Education

Our Special Education program serves our students with diverse needs.

There are many programs at Woodlawn ES, as well as in FCPS, that support the implementation of evidence-based practices to increase the academic achievement and the social and emotional competence of students based on individual needs.  Our dedicated Special Education Team works to support the needs of all our learners through general education and self-contained classrooms.

    I became a teacher because I struggled in school, and my own teachers had a huge impact on not only building my skills, but also on building my confidence. Everyone can learn - we just learn in different ways. Our differences can create challenges for us, but our differences also make the world a better place.
