Special Education Overview
The School District of Poynette offers a wide range of specially-designed instruction and related services for our students who qualify as a child with a disability. Because special education is a federal program, by definition a child with a disability is a child who has been found eligible by a school and parent team to have an impairment and the need for specially designed instruction. The child or older student must be at least three years old, but not yet 21, and not yet graduated form high school. If the school/ parent team determines that the student is eligible for programming and services, an individual education plan will be written that clearly outlines the instruction and school commitment.
If you have concerns for your child, or a child residing in our school district, please contact the Director of Student Services about referral information.
