PPCD - Ms. Barbara Garrett  -


PPCD provides special education services for any eligible  child with an identified need who is between the ages of 3, 4, and 5. Services are provided at various campuses in BISD at no cost to parents.

The goal of the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities is to provide early intervention on various campuses throughout BISD. Each child who meets eligibility for PPCD services will have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) developed through an Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) committee to address needs. All services are provided by professional staff in areas of need for each child.
