Welcome to the Aberdeen School District Special Education Department!

Appropriate special education services for students in the Aberdeen School District can only be accomplished when parents, students and staff work together.

My role, as director, is to facilitate the cooperation of all members of the Aberdeen School District special education community.  

If you have any questions, please contact me at the district office and I will be happy to personally discuss solutions with you.  I am interested in your suggestions and encourage you to share them with me.  

Working together, we can make our schools great places for children to learn and grow to their full potential.

Regards, Dr. Richard K. Bates
