Special Services

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Special education and related services are provided to children with disabilities who are eligible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Cordell School District follows the federal guidelines of providing a variety of services and placement continuum options.  Services are provided to students for a variety of needs.  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 Cordell Public School District and your child is already on an IEP, then please contact Amy Boecker, Director of Special Services or any building principal for assistance.  We are excited that you have selected Cordell as the community in which you will raise your family.  We want to make the move to our district as smooth as possible for your child. 

Thank you.

Amy Boecker, Director of Special Services
