  The power Inside of You is GREATER than the forces outside of You!


Pierce County Special Education Department is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of diverse learners.



Our Vision is to promote successful transition for all students throughout their educational journey and into meaningful post-secondary opportunities.


The Pierce County School System provides a free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment, to each eligible student. This includes individualized instruction to meet a student's educational needs in an effort to prepare the student for post-secondary education and/or employment and independent living. A full continuum of special education placement and related service options are available.
