• Whenever possible, the School Board desires both non-disabled and disabled children to share an interactive environment, which nurtures understanding, cooperation and mutual respect.

    Upon the identification of a disabled student’s exceptional need(s), the Superintendent or designee shall appoint child study team to consider those needs, determine the content of the student’s individualized educational program (IEP) and make placement decisions for the least restrictive environment that is educationally appropriate.

    The Superintendent or designee shall establish written procedures required by law and shall ensure district compliance with procedural safeguards, including appropriate notices to parents/guardians established by state and federal laws and regulations.

    Services will be provided in accordance with a student’s IEP once parental consent or administrative or judicial proceedings authorize the provision of special education and related services.
