How many special education students does your Buffalo public school have?

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.

Scroll down below the chart to the light gray Scribd bar and click on the rectangular icon to the right of the magnifying glasses to view the document at full size.
