Donna J. Krol

Director of Special Education

South Bend Community schools believe that all students can learn, but the path to excellence is different for each child. This is particularly true of the children who come to us with special needs.

Several programs provide the help these children need to make the most of their educational experiences and reach their full potential. Children with mental, physical and emotional handicaps as well as learning disabilities receive support from Special Education Services.

Services are offered for pre-school through 12th grade and in some cases, to age 22. Support for each learner is grounded in the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), and may range from assistance in the general education classroom, to direct instruction in special education classes.
