Exceptional Student Education

  • Welcome to the FSUS Exceptional Student Learning Support Website

    Florida State University Schools’ Exceptional Student Education (ESE) program is committed to providing eligible students with a free appropriate public education in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other applicable Florida and Federal laws. Although placement decisions are based on the unique needs of each student, by virtue of being a charter lab school/private employer, FSUS is limited in the programs and services it is able to provide as part of the continuum of placements available to students under the IDEA.
