The Pullman School District provides special education services for students from age 3 through 21.
Special education is a service provided to students with disabilities, necessitating special services. These services are provided without cost to the parents or guardians and provide instructional and related services specifically designed to meet the student's needs. (Please refer to district policy and procedure 2161.)
The goals of special education services are to provide for the particular needs of the child in the least restrictive environment. A continuum of services is developed in order to provide an appropriate program within this environment.
A team of specialists develop Individual Education Programs (IEPs) to assist students in their academic, vocational, social, verbal and physical needs.
Federal and state guidelines list students with the following conditions as eligible for special education services:
