It is the philosophy of the Mead School District and specific direction of the Special Education Department to assist all students with disabilities to benefit from their educational program with an appropriate degree of exposure to their non-disabled peers. What is taught should be directly applicable to the student's ability to successfully function in his/her environment. Every effort will be made to transition students into the community with an emphasis upon training students to work towards independence. Efforts of the Special Education Department will focus upon the intent of the district's mission by actualizing each student's positive self-image and assisting each student to achieve his/her potential independence in his/her post school environment.
Policies and procedures, required evaluations, plans and reports relating to the special education Part B program are available upon request by contacting the special services office.
