School districts are required to identify children in need of special education services each year. Services needed for children may be arranged within the district or by contraction with another district agency.
According to state and federal statutes, handicapped children are those children with handicaps in any of the following areas: vision, hearing, physical development, or intellectual.
Children eligible for services through school districts include children from birth through age 21. Programs for preschool children may range from programs for parents (in-home training for infant to age three) to programs at a center or school (ages 3-5).
Please contact the Newman Grove Schools if:
a) you suspect your child may be handicapped and you would like to secure an evaluation for your child
b) your child has been diagnosed as handicapped and is eligible for services.
