 Do you see your child struggling in some way?  Are teachers or staff sharing concerns?  These may or may not be indicators of a need that your child(ren) has.  As a district our priority is providing students opportunities and supports in order for them to reach their educational goals.  
 If you feel that your child may need assistance please contact the district.  We will collect information ("pre-referral packet") and assist in determining if your child is in need of an evaluation to determine eligibility for Special Education services (parent consent is required).  Together we make the determination of a need for evaluation. Please see the links to documents on this page for more information on the rights and processes.
Please remember the door is always open.... you are entrusting us with your child and we want to be sure that we are meeting their needs to the best of our ability.  If at anytime you would like to discuss things please do not hesitate to call or e-mail!


Have you been in a meeting and heard initials that you don't understand? Here are a few defined...
CSE - Committee on Special Education

CPSE - Committee on Preschool Special Education
IEP- Individualized Education Program (not "plan") - An IEP is an important legal document. It spells out your child's learning needs, the services the school will provide and how progress will be measured. Several people, including parents, are involved in creating the document.
CT - Consultant Teacher - This is a service where a Special Education teacher goes to the class with your child and assists them.  It may be with notes, it may be focusing, it may be modifying the work or some other area.  If it is Consultant Teacher - Direct the teacher will be in the class with your child.  If it is Consultant Teacher - Indirect the teacher will work with the classroom teacher to help them with things for your child. 
RTI - Response to Intervention - Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom.
