How We Show Our Support
Established in 1984 as the first public school foundation in the state of Missouri, the Special Education Foundation provides support and assistance to students who receive services from the Special School District of Saint Louis County (SSD).
SSD serves children and youth with disabilities, ages 3 to 21, throughout St. Louis County. More than 16 percent of students in St. Louis County receive special education services. Disabilities range from mild to severe, although the majority of students have learning disabilities. SSD is responsible for special education services in 22 partner districts throughout the county.
