Graysville Student Programs

The following programs are available to students who qualify, with the exception of Title I, which benefits all Graysville students. 

Special Education
Special Education is to ensure that all students with disabilities have available to them a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment that emphasizes the general curriculum as well as special education services and prepares them for employment and independent living. Special Education and related services will be designated as needed and appropriate to meet the unique needs of a student with disabilities. The Catoosa County School System believes very strongly that all children can learn. To the greatest extent possible, students with disabilities are served in the least restrictive environment (LEA), this being alongside their regular education peers.
