Mission Statement

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

    Disability is a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes the right of individuals to participate in or contribute to society. Improving educational results for children with disabilities is an essential element of our national policy of ensuring equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities.  - Opening to the IDEA  

    EQUITY, ACCESS, and OUTCOMES: The Student Support Services mission is to improve equity, access, and outcomes for all students by providing a continuum of exemplary services designed to meet student's individual needs. We will accomplish this goal by building supportive relationships with students and families, and maintaining strong staff teams at both the school and district levels.
