Identification of Students with Disabilities
In an ongoing effort to provide quality programming for all students, the District is collecting information in the area of Special Education enrollment. If you suspect that your child may have a disability and has not been previously identified, please contact your child’s building principal.
The services of a school psychologist are available for testing on a referral basis. If a teacher and/or family is concerned about a child’s academic progress, a referral to the Child Study Team (CST) may be made. This team, if warranted, will then recommend a course of action in determining the students needs, including testing by a school psychologist. Evaluations completed by the psychologist are used to identify students with special needs and to provide better educational programs for them. Parents must consent for this assessment.
