Special education and related services are provided to children with disabilities who are eligible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Edmond Public School District currently serves approximately 2,700 students with disabilities, which is about 14% of the overall student population. Edmond School District follows the federal guidelines of providing a variety of services and placement continuum options. Services are provided to students with severe/profound levels of disabilities who are nonverbal and/or are medically fragile; to students with moderate levels of disabilities who may have cognitive deficits or significant behavioral issues; and to students with mild levels of disabilities who may be struggling in one or more academic areas. All types of services and placement settings are determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team with input from you the parent and if possible your child. Working together as a team (parents and school personnel), we challenge each student based on their individual levels of functioning and performance to be successful in our school, home and community.
Suspecting your child may have a disability can be an anxious time for you and your family. Please review our Child Find information to assist you in obtaining help for a free evaluation to determine if your child is eligible for special education and related services.
If you are moving to Edmond Public School District and your child is already on an IEP, then please contact our Child Find Office in order that we can assist you. We are excited that you have selected Edmond as the community you want to raise your family. We want to make your move to our district as smooth as possible for your child.
