Special Education at Burroughs


Burroughs Special Education Team works under the Minneapolis Public Schools Special Education Mission Statement:

The special education department is relentlessly focused on students receiving individualized services and equitable instruction in their least restrictive environment. We are committed to educational evaluations and services that are not predicted by a student’s race.

Burroughs offers Special Education services to students who qualify for services.  We provide support to make gains in speech and language, academic, social or behavioral skills, and self-help/functional skills. Related services including speech/language, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and adaptive physical education are also provided based on individual need.
