Imagine a place where special education teachers can comb through aisles of cutting-edge instructional tools and resources for use in their classrooms, choosing from thousands of professional books, journals, flashcards, books on tape, educational games, software and adaptive and assistive devices. Now imagine that parents and students can come to the same place and access the very same materials for use in their homes.

Just such a place exists at the Central Administrative Offices of SSD. It’s called the Instructional Resource Center (IRC). Families of students served by SSD can visit the center Monday to Friday each week or can browse through the IRC catalog online.

To check on the availability of and to reserve materials, call the IRC at 314.989.8308 or 314.989.8334. E-mail us at

Students and staff can also access MoreNet's selection of online databases for research through the IRC. From schools, login should be automatic. Please email the IRC at for the username and password to gain access from home.

PLEASE NOTE: SSD schools, programs, sites and operational facilities are currently closed due to COVID-19, and the IRC is also currently closed. Please email to renew material until we are able to open for your return of items. Checkout for fall and regular hours are tenatively set for August 10, 2020.
