Exceptional Children

The EC department believes that every child deserves to receive personalized, engaging, and individualized education designed to maximize educational and functional outcomes. We are dedicated to providing quality specialized instruction to all students with disabilities while maintaining the overall mission of Extraordinary Education Every Day. We accomplish this by collaborating, supporting, and providing resources to teachers and students for the provision of a free appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. Moreover, by communicating and collaborating with all stakeholders to include those within the district as well as the community - both families and agencies - we strengthen the likelihood of our students' success.

News and Update

The EC department is excited to announce that Dr. April Lamanno, School Psychologist, has been nominated as the 2018 Exceptional Children Educator of Excellence for Rowan-Salisbury Schools.  Dr. Lamanno will be recognized at the Exceptional Children's Division 68th Conference on Exceptional Children held at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, NC, on November 15th and 16th.

Dr. Lamanno has displayed a high level of initiative and leadership in her schools as well as at the district level.  While many school psychologists function simply as evaluators, Dr. Lamanno knows the importance of providing a diverse range of services to the schools she supports.   She strives to be a change agent so that the students in Rowan-Salisbury can have access to the broad range of services they need to include mental health supports.  Dr. Lamanno recently spearheaded the Intelligent Lives viewing in the district, which brought together parents, educators, and community partners, all of whom support and believe that we should have high expectations for all learners.  

Congratulations to Dr. Lamanno!  We appreciate you and all of your valuable contributions to your schools, the students and families you support, and the district!
