I currently live in SoCal and would like to move to CO. I heard that the school districts are great. I have a daughter with special needs. I am wondering if there is a specific city/school district that is better with regards to special needs. Thanks.

We've had discussions on this before, everyone had good positive stories to tell, but there was one poster with a sour experience.

Use the Search the Forum tool, with key words like special or needs or the two word combination special needs and you'll find a lot of info. Only takes a moment to search, folks are reluctant to rekey the same answers over & over.

We moved here from northern California 3 years ago. The Castle Pines North area, 30 mins south of Denver, near Castle Rock has wonderful schools for children with special needs. My son has an IEP and thrived at our school. The schools in California were too crowded.
I do have to warn you.........the weather leaves alot to be desired for.......we have one week of Spring and one week of Autumn, and a very long winter, and the summer has blistery uv rays you must protect yourself at all times.
We have extreme weather here in other words.

hope this helps.

I believe there are some good special needs schools by Longmont. I know a couple that just bought a house there because of their autistic child. I will try to find some more info for you.

Hope you DO read what mover6 says here. Denver metro area weather is very, very different than SO Calif. weather. If you don't like snow and some cold temps during the winter months........DON'T MOVE HERE. And, unlike SO Calif., we can get some nasty thunderstorms roll in to certain parts of the Denver metro areas.
Good Luck.
