Special Education Department
Students of school age living within the school district and in need of special education are provided a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) by Northeastern School District. The education program is determined by an Individualized Education Program (IEP) following a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) meeting. These teams include principals, regular education teachers, special education teachers, counselors, school psychologists, appropriate agencies and most importantly - the parents.
