NOTICE TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:
Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the District must provide students with disabilities with appropriate special education and related services to address their educational
needs. If your student receives related services from the District through their Individualized Education Program (“IEP”) document, such as occupational therapy services, physical therapy services, school social work services, school counseling services, school nursing services, school psychological services, and speech and language therapy, you may request copies of
related service logs developed and maintained by the District for your child. These related service logs include information regarding the type and duration of related services administered to your child.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s special education services, please contact your child’s Case Manager, Building Principal, or Director of Student Services via phone or email.
Students with disabilities who do not qualify for an individualized education program, as required by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and implementing provisions of this Cod, may qualify for services under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 if the child (i) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (ii) has a record of a physical or mental impairment, or (iii) is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment.
If you feel your child may be eligible for a 504 plan, please contact one of the following administrators:
Heather Baker, Dorothy Simon Elementary School Principal 815-335-2318
