Assisting local school districts in the education of students with special needs
The Oregon Department of Education established state-wide regional programs to equalize the burden of funding special education services across the state. The purpose of regional services is to assist local school districts in the education of special needs students, although primary responsibility for the education of these students remains with the school district(s) located in each region.
The mission of Columbia Regional Program (CRP) is to support equalizing educational opportunities and access for the individual needs of students requiring special service. Our team fosters life-long learning and promotes personal growth for community integration.
