This page contains information and frequently asked question regarding Special Education.

What is an MDT meeting?
     An MDT (Multi-Disciplinary Team) meeting is when a group consisting of parents, classroom teacher, special education teachers, school psychologist, school principal and sometimes the student meet to discuss assessments and/or special education placement options.  An MDT meeting is held to decide if a child qualifies for special education services.  If the MDT determines that a child qualifies for special education that child is re-evaluated every three years to confirm that the child still requires support and another MDT meeting is held at that time.

How often are students formally tested for special education?
     Students who have been verified with a disability will be tested every 3 years.  Parent permission for testing will be obtained before testing begins.

What is an IEP?
      An IEP (Individualized Education Plan) is a contract that explains the specific objectives a student will focus on within a curriculum area.  It also includes classroom accommodations and testing modifications.  An IEP meeting is held annually to discuss the student's progress and set the new objectives for the upcoming IEP year.
