Special Education

Special Education Services- The School District of Weyauwega-Fremont is committed to providing a free, appropriate public education to every child attending school. In working toward this goal we also recognize that some children require special education services to meet their educational needs. Because of this, special education programs and services are available at all grade levels in the district. A child’s need for special education is determined, following a referral by a parent, teacher, or other professional, through evaluation by a team of educators knowledgeable about the child as well as educational disabilities. If the team identifies a need, and agree upon an educational plan, special education services can be provided.
While a few students with low-incidence handicaps are transported to other districts to meet their educational needs, the vast majority of our children are taught in the district. Further, care is given to assure that children receiving special education services have the opportunity to be educated in the regular classroom whenever possible. Special education services are critical links to academic success for many children, but should not lead to missed opportunities for learning in, and belonging to, the larger school community.
For additional information about special education, parents can contact building principals or the special education office at 867-8821.
