Important Information about Special Education Services

As public school, we provide a Free Appropriate Public Education to children ages 3-21, including those children who qualify for special education services unless the parent refuses special education services. In order for a child to receive intervention or special education services, an evaluation must be conducted to confirm the presence of a delay or disability.


We provide specialized programming through specially trained teachers to provide education-related services for children with disabilities. Supports are provided in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) and range from mild and moderate to significantly more involved supports for each of the following disabilities as defined by the State of Oklahoma:

  • Autism
  • Developmental Delay
  • Deaf-Blindness
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Hearing Impairment, Including Deafness
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Orthopedic Impairments
  • Other Health Impairments
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Visual Impairment Including Blindness

All public schools are mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) to identify, locate, and evaluate students who may demonstrate disabilities through the Child Find process. The intent of Child Find is that all children with disabilities, ages 3-21, are located, identified, and evaluated to determine whether they require special education supports and services.


If through Child Find activities, a child is identified as possibly having a disability and in need of special education services, we may seek parent consent to evaluate the child. All such evaluations will be conducted in compliance with applicable federal and state law and regulations. Parents must report that their child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) during the enrollment process.


Please contact our Special Services department to report students who may be in need of these specialized educational and/or related services.

Parent Rights and Procedural Safeguards

As experts on their children, parents and guardians are important components in the special education process. Parents and guardians of children eligible for or currently receiving special education services have certain rights according to state and federal laws. For more information on parent rights in special education, a copy of the Oklahoma State Department of Education Parent Rights in Special Education and Notice of Procedural Safeguards is available the State of Oklahoma Website.
