The Special Education Department is dedicated to identifying and serving students with disabilities.
Parents, staff, community members can make a referral regarding any child they may suspect with a disability.
Primary Disability Areas
Anyone can make a referral on a student who they suspect may have a disability. Those concerned should contact the Director of Special Education. Teachers work with the Student Assistance Team in their building in making student referrals. Once a referral is received the district has 60 days to complete an evaluation from the time of parent permission. On or before the 60th day a team meeting will be held with parents, teachers, special education staff and other specialists to determine if the child qualifies for a disability. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will be written if the child qualifies, to put in writing what special education services are appropriate. The team has an additional 30 days if necessary to meet and create the IEP following the evaluation meeting.
If you would like more information or to make a referral please contact the special education department at (920)596-2238 and ask for Sally.
