Special education support and services are provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) which was signed into law in 1997. The legislation was signed in November 2004 reauthorizing it as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEIA).
Through comprehensive child find efforts, the Ross Local School District seeks out all resident children (and non-residents attending a private school within the Ross Local School District) with potentially disabling conditions.
A full continuum of special education services is available to resident students, ages three through twenty-one years. Preschool students are served in a variety of ways utilizing many service delivery options depending upon evaluation results and IEP team recommendations. These may include center-based services located at Morgan Elementary where the program is integrated with non-disabled preschool children, itinerant services, and disabled students enrolled in community-based preschool programs within the Ross Local School District.
