A Unified Voice for Special Education Students and Leaders Across Georgia
 G-CASE is organized to promote professional leadership, provide an opportunity for the study of problems common to its members, and to communicate through discussion and publications information that will develop improved services for exceptional children.
G-CASE serves the members of CASE who live and work in Georgia! Our major goal is to improve services to children with special needs. We strive to provide leadership and support to members by providing input into the policies and practices in Georgia which impact the quality of education and by providing support to the professionals who serve the students of Georgia.
The leadership of this organization includes an Executive Committee, a Board of Directors from the eighteen districts across the state, and several ad-hoc members from other organizations.
