     Due to the need for district-wide staff training and set up after Spring Break, ALL 504 Plan, Early Childhood, and Special Education related meetings (IEP, Eligibility, etc) will be cancelled until April 6. The district is collaborating with the Oregon Department of Education on guidance for staff and families as things move forward. Further information and processes on rescheduling is being developed and will be provided as soon as it is ready. 

    We very much appreciate everyone's flexibility and patience through this trying time. Stay safe out there and take care of each other.

Mission Statement

  • Welcome to the Student Support Services section of the Gresham-Barlow School District website. 

    EQUITY, ACCESS, and OUTCOMES. The Student Support Services Department mission is to constantly strive for improvements in equity, access, and outcomes for all students. We believe we can do this by providing exemplary services along a continuum designed to meet the individual needs of each and every student with special needs. Accomplishing this goal requires building the strongest teams possible at both the school and district levels. We choose to do this because we value our staff, students and their families.
