About Us

The Georgia Learning Resources System (GLRS) is a network of 17 regional programs that provide training and resources to school system personnel, parents of students with disabilities,  and other interested individuals to support the achievement, graduation rate, and post-secondary success of students with disabilities.  The programs are funded by the Georgia Department of Education, Division for Special Education Services and Supports, and are operated in collaboration with Regional Educational Service Agencies and local school districts that serve as fiscal agents for the programs.  GLRS programs are funded entirely with federal discretionary funds made available through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

GLRS staff is specialized in providing professional learning, technical assistance and coaching for school systems on a variety of topics related to students with disabilities including:

  • Providing Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) support to school systems
  • Assisting students with disabilities in making progress with CCRPI
  • Analyzing data
  • Facilitating math and reading projects
  • Implementing drop-out initiative projects
  • Supporting transition planning
  • Developing other specialities based upon student needs relating to indicators in the State Performance Plan
