Exceptional Student Education

Welcome to the website for Exceptional Student Education (ESE). Services are provided to students who have been found eligible for ESE programs including Specific Learning Disabled, Intellectually Disabled, Emotional Behavioral Disabled, Deaf or Hard of Hearing, Visually Impaired, Physically Handicapped, Speech Impaired, Language Impaired, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Gifted. Related services include educationally relevant Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. The ESE program is funded from state, federal and local allocations. Policies, programs, and procedures are established in accordance with state and federal regulations and requirements.


Exceptional Student Education (ESE) services are located at all schools. The majority of students receive their education at their neighborhood school. Although all Brevard Public Schools offer a continuum of services to support the needs of students requiring ESE services, some students who require the supports of a separate class setting may access a classroom that meets their individual needs in accordance with the feeder plan for their neighborhood school.


The latest Student Progression Plan for Exceptional Student Education is available on our site.

Upon graduation, each student should be able to follow post-graduation activities as written in their Transition Plan.

As a possible option for students who may choose Adult Education, classes have been established in three areas of the county for students with disabilities.

Additional classes are accessed through Project Success at the Adult Education Sites.

Parent Survey - Exceptional Student Education 

The Florida Department of Education is working with school districts to gather information on how well parents think their child's school is partnering with parents of students with disabilities, and would like to include your input. Your responses will help guide efforts to improve services and results for children and families. This survey is for parents of students with individual educational plans (IEP) receiving special education services during the 2016-17 school year. All information provided will remain confidential.

You may submit one online survey for each child receiving services. To access the survey, please refer to the survey code on your invite cover letter or the box on the bottom left-hand corner of your paper survey.

New Online Tool to Empower and Inform Florida Families The Florida Department of Education announces a new website that will help Florida families make critical education decisions by enabling them to access school and district-level data. The website will also better inform families about the state's college-and career-ready standards and the quality of learning taking place in their students' classrooms. One of the website's primary functions is the school performance search tool, which enables parents to search by district, zip code and city, and then compare school and district data. In addition to performance data, the website provides information relevant to current and future students of all ages and includes easy to-find information about the Florida Standards, school and district performance results in core subjects; educator effectiveness; and graduation and postsecondary statistics.
