Special Education eligibility and the required pre-referral processes are intended to support the practice of providing high quality instruction and intervention matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction and applying child response data to important educational decisions.

 To obtain child outcome data, a multi-tiered system of intervention options are necessary as a means to integrate educational problem-solving across educational levels. Multi-tiered system of interventions are consistent with federal legislation (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEA 2004) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB 2001)) and evidence-based research. The purpose of these laws is to produce better outcomes for all children and to apply procedures with strong scientific bases to a wide range of decisions, including determination of eligibility for special education.

Eligibile disabled students are educated in the Least Restrictive Enrironment with a full continuum of services based on needs outlined in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The Supervision and Monitoring process of the program is outlined in the links to the left.
