Users can select three different geographies (planning areas, neighborhood clusters, and 2022 wards) to view where students receiving special education services live. By planning areas, Far Southeast and Southwest and Far Northeast and Southeast have the greatest number of students receiving special education services. As a share of public school students living within the planning areas, Far Southeast and Southwest, Far Northeast and Southeast, Lower Anacostia Waterfront and Near Southwest, and Central Washington all have the greatest shares of the public school students receiving special education services (between 18% and 19% each).

At the neighborhood cluster level, the greatest number of students receiving special education services live in Congress Heights (Cluster 39), Columbia Heights and Mt Pleasant (Cluster 2), and Brightwood Park and Petworth (Cluster 18). The share of special education students within each neighborhood cluster ranges from 21% in the Southwest Waterfront (Cluster 9), Douglas and Shipley Terrace (Cluster 38), and Kenilworth (Cluster 29) to less than 10% in clusters west of Rockcreek Park.
