Special Education Program and Services

District Special Education Programs:
Most students are served in neighborhood schools in our district. A full spectrum of special education services are offered for the vast majority of students. However, students with severe and multiple disabilities are sometimes served in a district cluster site where low incidence services are concentrated.

Out of District Special Education Programs:


Northeast Metro Intermediate District 916 Programs
Northeast Metro 916 offers a range of special educational programs designed specifically for students who have needs that cannot be met within a district program.

  • Students who have severe disabilities require special resources to learn and develop to their fullest ability. Because students with severe disabilities comprise less than one-half of one percent of the general population, most school districts cannot afford the special programs, equipment and expertise that these students need.

    Northeast Metro 916 fills this need by working with member districts to bring children with severe disabilities together into cost-effective and efficient programs.
