The Special Education Program provides education services and related services to students with disabilities. Special education services are provided to all eligible district students as prescribed by the federal law titled the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This law assures that students with disabilities receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) as described in a written Individual Education Program (IEP) that is developed by the parents working with the educational team.
