As a department, we are committed to reversing the trend of isolation and segregation of students with disabilities by ensuring all students have access to high quality instruction responsive to their needs and delivered by effective and culturally responsive educators within the Least Restrictive Environment.
Our primary focus is to build capacity and to support staff members district wide to ensure effective instruction is the predictor of student outcomes.

Synergy SE Support
Synergy SE assistance is never far away.
- You can call 503-916-3375 option 3 to be connected to a knowledgeable Synergy SE support person.
- You can review Quick Reference Guides and demonstration videos here.
- You may sign up for Synergy SE work sessions on the learning campus. These sessions are 3 hours either Am or PM. This is a working session in which you can work on your documents and get help with Synergy SE. I hold 2 work sessions per month October through May. If you are unable to attend a scheduled work session please call me and we may be able to coordinate a time for you to sit by me at the BESC so I can answer your questions as you work.
