Special Education

Our Mission

We will see each child as an individual, working to develop their academic, emotional, physical, and social skills to allow them to leave us at graduation as an adult prepared to make the most of their future.

The Bryant School District is committed to locating, identifying and evaluating students with exceptionalities. If you suspect that your child has a disability, please reach out to the special education office at 501-847-5660.

Got a concern?

Parents who have questions or concerns about their student should first contact the special education teacher/case manager, general education teacher, and/or school therapist who works with their student. If the questions or concerns are not answered at that level, the following list shows who to contact, and in which order:

  • Start with the special education teacher/case manager, general education teacher, and/or school therapist.

  • If you feel concerns are not met, contact your school principal.

  • If you feel your concerns are not met, contact the:

    • Assistant Special Education Director of Early Childhood (if the student is receiving early childhood services).

    • Assistant Special Education Director (if the student is receiving school-age special education services).

    • Special Education Director.
