    Director of Special Education's Message




    It is with great honor and humility that I serve as the Director of Special Education and Support Services.  I am responsible for assisting in the leadership, administration, and supervision of the system’s special education and related services. I am committed to maintaining a high level of integrity, professionalism and serve as an advocate for our students. 


    The Richmond County School System offers a continuum of special education and related services.  We work collaboratively with stakeholders and support students through a variety of programs and services. All services are determined by the IEP team, which includes parents/guardians and school level personnel. As the system continues to expand and change, we will remain steadfast to continue our commitment of providing appropriate services and programs for students with special needs.


    We believe a strong commitment from family, school and community is essential to improving outcomes for students. Thank you for partnering with us!


    It is going to be a GREAT school year! We are always available to support families, concerns, or suggestions. Please feel free to contact me at (706) 862 – 1132.
