P 6140 Services for Students with Disabilities
The District does not utilize a separate curriculum for students with disabilities. It is the policy of the District to implement a program of regular and special education based on the individualized needs of each disabled student. The District will provide special education and/or related services to students with disabilities in accordance with applicable law, including the IDEA, its implementing regulations, the Missouri State Plan for Part B of the IDEA, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, its implementing regulations, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
For students identified as disabled under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), each student’s IEP team will develop an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) that will address how that student’s disability affects that student’s involvement and progress in the general curriculum. Each student’s IEP team also will, in accordance with IDEA, create an IEP that includes a statement of the special education, related services and supplementary aides and services that will enable the student to be involved in and make progress in the general educational curriculum.
As provided in student’s individualized education program (IEP), students will receive instruction in Braille or the use of Braille. However, the student’s IEP team will determine, after an examination of a student’s reading and writing skills, needs and appropriate reading and writing media, including an evaluation of the student’s future needs for instruction, if the use of Braille is appropriate.
