Exceptional Student Education

    • Exceptional Student Education
    ​​Exceptional Student Education (ESE) provides services to over 13,000 students within  Volusia County Schools.  Students may be considered for ESE services if they meet the criteria of one or more of the categories of disabilities and/or meet eligibility criteria for gifted services as outlined in the Exceptional Student Education Special Policies and Procedures (SP&P).
    Students may be identified with intellectual, behavioral, physical, medical, sensory and/or communication exceptionalities.   The student must show a need for special education and related services as a result of his/her disability or disabilities. 
    Students being considered for the gifted program are also required to demonstrate an educational need for services.  

    Parents have the right to bring another adult of their choice to any ESE related meetings.
    For further information about services, click on ESE Programs and Services on the left.  The site will provide general information and awareness of the services and programs that ESE/SS supports.
