Anthony Independent School District offers a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to all children ages 3-21, who qualify for Special Education Services.  Determination regarding Special Education services is made on an individual basis.  Special Education programs and services adapt content, teaching methodology and delivery models, to meet the unique needs of each individual student.  In addition to instructional services, related services are also provided to those students who have an identified need.  The Special Education programs in Anthony ISD operate under local district board policies and the Legal Framework for the Child-Centered Special Education process.  The Special Education staff in Anthony ISD are highly qualified, trained and competent professionals.  We at Anthony ISD make a serious commitment to providing Special Education students with a quality education based on high expectations.
