Mission Statement

The Vision and Mission of the Saline Special Education Department, in collaboration with general education, parents, community and students, is to create an environment in which all students will become leaders of their own education.

We work together to enhance strengths, recognize needs, and encourage responsible citizenship. It is our hope to foster independence and promote lifelong learning.

1/23/17 Several district families have been able to utilize the State of Michigan waiver program to obtain financial support for respite care. (see link below) This is a wonderful resource for families. Saline Area Schools has been approached to allow the respite workers to support students in school, unfortunately due to various state funding streams and public organization policies we are not able to honor these requests.
