Exceptional Children’s Services
All schools provide specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parent, to meet the unique educational needs of children ages three through twenty-one who have been evaluated and declared eligible and in need of special education services. These services are offered on a continuum of varying levels of service, depending on the needs of each student as identified in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The least restrictive environment or setting in which the student may receive an appropriate education is a primary factor for consideration by IEP teams. Most school-aged children with disabilities are served in regular and resource settings; however, intensive intervention or separate settings are also available for students who require more service to meet their special needs. Henderson County Public Schools follow federal mandates and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction policies when determining evaluation requirements and program eligibility.
