Exceptional Student Services Overview
Roosevelt School District is dedicated to providing eligible students with disabilities a free and appropriate public education consistent with federal and state laws. To meet the unique learning needs of every student we work in multidisciplinary teams to individualize the support for each student.
The Exceptional Student Services Department of the Roosevelt Elementary School District provides services to children, ages 3 - 21 with disabilities.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2004) defines child with a disability as a child who has a qualifying disability and by reason thereof is in need of special education and related services. In other words, under the IDEA it is not enough to simply have a qualifying disability. The disability must cause the child to need special education and related services in order to access the general curriculum, which is the same curriculum taught to all children.
