Issaquah School District Special Services programs serve students with disabilities from birth through twenty-one years who reside within district boundaries. As specified in federal and state law, students with disabilities are served in the least restrictive environment to the maximum extent possible. Thus, at all schools in the district, there are students with special needs participating as appropriate in general education classrooms and general education curriculum.
Special education services include individualized, specially-designed instruction in academic, self-help, communication, motor, vocational and social skill areas. Individual Education Programs (IEPs) are developed at least annually. IEP goals are written for each student based on the results of formal and informal testing and observations. Some student will also have objectives for each goal. The district carefully sequences instruction and maintains data about student progress.
