Coffey County Special Education Cooperative staff members strive to ensure that every student receives the educational experiences necessary for success. Special education programs are developed to challenge and inspire, while providing for the individual needs of each student. Our goal is to help each exceptional student become as independent as possible when they leave a Coffey County school.
