Program Overview

Exceptional Children's Education Program

Brevard Elementary has seven special education teachers serving students in regular classrooms who need support with one to one pull out, small group instruction and full inclusion settings. We have the distinction of being the one elementary school in the county with self contained classrooms for students with high levels of need.

At BES we work together as a team to provide the best educational opportunity to each student based on his or her unique and individual needs. Parents are a vital, necessary and required part of this team. We welcome your communication.
