Special education covers a wide range of services and supports provided by the school district to any eligible student with a disability. The provision of special education is firmly rooted in both state and federal regulations and mandates, as well as, guided by evidence-based practices. The special education process relies heavily on collaborative partnership between general education and special education staff and parents. Data based, team driven determinations guide the special education process from prereferral interventions all the way through the development and progress monitoring of an Individualized Education Program.
