6010 Special Education Identification, Evaluation and Verification

All children, regardless of their handicapping condition, are entitled to a free, appropriate public education and an equal opportunity for education according to their needs.  The District will follow the rules and protocols created by the Nebraska Department of Education and the United State Department of Education in identifying, evaluation, verifying and serving students who may be entitled to rehabilitation or special education services.

The School District shall provide special education and rehabilitative services only to children with verified disabilities and qualifying conditions.

The District will abide by all state and federal laws and regulations relating to special education, and the Districts special education policies and procedures are to be interpreted to be in compliance with federal and state law and regulations.  In the event of changes in law or regulations, the school administration shall be authorized to implement modifications of practice to comply with such changes (whether the changes impose more or less stringent procedural or substantive requirements) until such time as amended policies or regulations are adopted by the Board of Education.

Under the direction of the Superintendent, the administration shall establish and maintain procedures governing the provision of special education and related services to students with disabilities in compliance with the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Amendments of 2014; the Nebraska Special Education Act; requirements of the Nebraska Department of Education (92 NAC 51, 92 NAC 55); and other laws, regulations, and rules as amended from time to time.

Employees and contractors of the District are expected to comply with these policies and regulations in all respects.
