    The mission of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Exceptional Children's Division  (NC DPI EC Division) is to ensure that students with disabilities develop intellectually, physically, emotionally, and vocationally through the provision of an appropriate individualized education program in the least restrictive environment.

    Union County Public Schools Exceptional Children's Program provides specially designed instruction and programming designed to meet the needs of students with disabilities according to federal and state mandates of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.  We are dedicated to providing quality specially-designed instruction to all students with disabilities through special education and related services.
