The School District of Campbellsport provides services for students who are identified with a disability. Students who are suspected of having a disability are referred for an evaluation to determine if they have a special need in one of the following areas:
- Learning Disability
- Speech/Language Disability
- Cognitive Disability
- Orthopedically Impaired
- Visually Impaired
- Emotional Disability
- Other Health Impaired
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Hearing Impaired
- Significant Developmental Delay
Students who meet the state eligibility criteria for one of the eleven disability areas may need extra help through special education and related services. A child must be at least 3 years old, but not yet 21, and not yet graduated from high school. Anyone can refer a child for an evaluation but only parents can grant consent for the evaluation to happen. Parents are an integral part of the IEP process and IEP team.
- Parent Consent
Individual Education Program (IEP) Team decides:
1. Does the child have an impairment/disability?
2. Does the child need special education services?
- IEP team writes the educational plan together, outlining what services the child needs.
- IEP team decides on placement (where services will happen).
- If the parent gives consent for services, the plan is implemented.
- IEP team reviews the plan annually.
- IEP team re-evaluates child at least once every three years unless the parent and school agree not to.
If you have concerns about your child’s development or school progress, talk first with your child’s teacher to see what is being done or what could be done to help.
Referral forms can be downloaded HERE or picked up from any school office. You can return the completed referral form to your school office or return by mail to Jack Strebel, Director of Pupil Services, 114 W. Sheboygan St., Campbellsport, WI 53010.
Change in the Specific Learning Disability Criteria
Wisconsin’s rule for identifying students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) has changed. No later than December 1, 2013, all initial SLD evaluations of public school students will use information from interventions to make eligibility decisions.
This article is to notify you that beginning on December 1st, 2013 initial SLD evaluations in the Campbellsport School District will begin using information from a student’s response to intensive, scientific research based or evidence based interventions when making special education eligibility decisions.
