Below is a chart of every Buffalo public school, broken down by the number and percentage of enrolled students with disabilities. Overall, the district listed 6,857 students -- 22 percent -- with disabilities as of June.
Disabilities include physical and mental disabilities, though students who need only speech therapy services and otherwise receive general education instruction are pulled out as a separate subgroup. A total of 5,755 -- 18 percent -- are considered students with more significant special needs.
The district is also working on a separate chart that breaks down students with special needs by type of disability and by race. When we get that information, we'll post it here on the School Zone blog.
