Parents of students with disabilities in Clayton are now alleging the Special School District is failing their children, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports

Students with disabilities in the Clayton School District and other districts in St. Louis County receive services from the Special School District of St. Louis County. This means that while the students technically attend Clayton schools, their education is mostly managed by SSD. 

According to the Post Dispatch, the split system is leading parents to believe their children are not getting the same educational experience and quality as their peers. Parents are asking why the school district can’t provide special education services to its students directly. They are also raising questions about accountability and transparency. Parents are now demanding Clayton create a new position focused solely on special education. Around 270 students qualify for special education in the district.
