Nettle Creek School Corporation is part of the New Castle Area Special Services cooperative, which provides administrative services for our special education programs.  While most of our special education staff are Nettle Creek employees, some of our special education teachers and therapists are employed by New Castle.  Our students receive all special education services on-site at HES.
