Special Education

Central Point School District 6 provides a continuum of programs to accommodate the needs of all students. There is a clear commitment of staff and resources to modify not only the curricular standards, but the environment, to provide genuine opportunities for all students to learn, engage themselves socially, and work towards a high school diploma. 

What is special education?

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that makes available a free and appropriate public education to eligible children with disabilities (birth-21) and ensures special education and related services to those students. Students identified as eligible for special education services must meet the following two requirements:

  • Federal and state eligibility requirements as having a disability in at least one of 11 handicapping condition categories
  • Need specially designed instruction

Transition services (ages 16 - 21) are available to special education students who graduate with a Modified Diploma, Extended Diploma, or Alternative Certificate. 

The Douglas Education Service District provides  Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) services for Jackson County children, ages birth through five.  For children younger than kindergarten, please telephone Jackson County EI/ECSE at 541.494.7800.
