The Washougal School District’s Department of Special Services coordinates school and district special services to support each student’s success. We work directly with students, classroom teachers, paraeducators, administrators, and parents to create wraparound support with an emphasis on educating and preparing the whole student. Our goal is the academic, social-emotional, and post-secondary success of each child.

Concerned About Your Child’s Development?

The Washougal School District locates, evaluates and serves children from birth through age 21 with academic, cognitive, social, behavior, speech, language, motor, hearing, or vision needs. If you know a child who may have a need in one or more of these areas or if you would like more information about our services, please contact: Karen Streeter, Special Services Administrative Assistant, at 360-954-3020.

  • For children Birth to 3, ESD 112 has a program that provides essential supports for families of children with special needs.  Please visit the ESD 112 Early Intervention website to learn more about these programs, and the process to learn whether your child can benefit from these supports.
  • For eligible children 3-5, we offer a developmental preschool that focuses on creating a structured environment that develops students’ social, academic, and independent living skills.
  • For school-aged children, parents of a child with a suspected disability from Kindergarten to age 21 can contact their child’s neighborhood school and ask for the school psychologist. If found eligible, they may access special education programs appropriate and individualized to their needs. We offer a continuum of support across our buildings that focus on students’ ability to access the general education curriculum with their peers.
  • Parents of students moving into the district with a current Individualized Educational Program (IEP) are encouraged to notify your neighborhood school prior to enrolling.

Connor McCroskey, Director

I am excited to be serving the Washougal community as we work to support each student’s ability to feel connected, confident, and competent in school. During the 23-24 school year I will be working to ensure that our students PreK through 21 have access to rigorous instruction in a safe and welcoming classroom environment.

 I am looking forward to partnering with the wonderful staff and parents at each of our elementary, middle, and high school buildings. As we all look ahead to the school year, if you have any questions you can contact me at: 360-954-3020.
