Eligibility

Special education and related services are provided to students who are evaluated and meet eligibility criteria in the areas of autism, deaf-blindness, deafness, developmental delay, emotional disability, hearing impairment, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, specific learning disability, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury or visual impairment including blindness.

Evaluations for eligibility determination may include information in the following areas: health; vision; hearing; social/emotional status; general ability; academic performance; communicative status; motor abilities and adaptive behavior. School personnel can explain the specific evaluations associated with each of these areas.

Once a student is found eligible for special education and related services, the principal will assign a case manger to oversee the student’s programming. The case manager will be the parent’s first line of contact at the school regarding the student’s special education program.

A reevaluation will be completed at least every three years for students currently eligible for special education and related services. The purpose of the reevaluation is to determine whether the student is still considered a child with a disability who is in need of special education and related services. Prior to the reevaluation meeting, a Review of Existing Data meeting may be held to determine whether additional assessments are needed to determine continued eligibility.
