Students with identified disabilities receive specially designed instruction in areas of need. The district recognizes sixteen disabilities as defined by state and federal law; and provides instruction and related services as needed. Students must be referred and go through a formal assessment process to be eligible for special education services.
Written parent permission is required for assessment and program placement. Individualized Educational Plans are developed and reviewed annually and students are formally re-assessed every three years to determine need for continued eligibility. Districts must follow approved policies and all state and federal special education regulations to receive funding.
