For Parents

Referral for Special Education Services: Any individual (ie: parent, teacher, principal) suspecting that a child is having difficulty in the regular classroom and could possibly benefit from special education, should initiate a referral for possible testing by contacting the building principal.  Every effort will be made to assist the child at the building level.  If strategies fail, permission for testing will be sought.  Any questions in this regard, please contact the Director at 219-365-8507
