Special Education/IDEA Eligibility

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, also known as IDEA, is a federal law that gives eligible students with disabilities the right to receive special education services and assistance in school.

To be eligible for 504/Special Education and Related Services, a student with a disability must need instruction or service specially designed to meet the student’s unique needs based on that disability.

Note: Parents, Guardians, and Teachers have the right to request a special education evaluation for students at any time.
