The North Allegheny School District Special Education Department is proud of its long-standing history of delivering a full continuum of services and programs to students. The District's goal is to design appropriate programs and services by facilitating collaborative efforts among parents, teachers, students, administrators, and other support personnel. Levels of intervention are based on student need and are determined by the IEP team.

    The District collaborates with representatives from the community by way of the Parent Networking Group (PNG), the North Allegheny Parents for Gifted Education (NAPAGE), as well as the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) to promote best practices in education. Maintaining challenging expectations for all learners while respecting the diverse characteristics of each individual is our priority. Responding to needs expressed by the various committees, the Department has presented a wide range of in-service programs to staff members and parents, purchased and implemented research-based reading programs, and invested in resources needed to promote students transitioning to adulthood.
