Welcome to the Special education Department!

The Greater Gulf Coast Cooperative of Special Education works in collaboration with 4 school districts: Hitchcock ISD, Damon ISD, Danbury ISD, and Needville ISD. GGCCSE is headquartered at Hitchcock ISD's Administration Building. 

GGCCSE provides special education services to children with disabilities ages 3 through 21, to meet their specific education needs. 

Specialized services, supplementary aids, and other supports are provided in a variety of settings to enable them to progress on their Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs).

To the maximum extent appropriate, children with disabilities are educated with children who are nondisabled. Special classes, separate schooling, or other removals of children with disabilities from the regular educational environment occurs only if the nature or severity of the disability is such that education in regular classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily in accordance with §§300.114.

Any child suspected of having a disability, including those in private schools, residential facilities, parochial, home schools, hospitals, and jails may be referred to their local school district or to the GGCCSE Director, Evangelina Guerra, at 409·316·6546 x1422 for Hitchcock & Danbury and 979·793·4308 x1214 for Needville & Damon.
