Special Education

The Webberville Community School District offers a full continuum of program options designed to meet the individual needs of eligible students with disabilities.  This program is available to students from birth through age 26 who attend a public or non-public school within the Ingham Intermediate School District boundaries. This is to include students who are homeless, wards of the state, and students of migrant workers.

Our district has approximately 100 students receiving Special Education services, which represents about 14% of the school population. The district is committed to providing education for these students in the least restrictive environment to meet their individual needs. Special Education students attend regular, special, and co-taught education classes in our district.

While emphasis is placed on educating all students in integrated settings to the maximum extent appropriate, placement decisions must be based on individual student needs and desired outcomes. This is rooted in the Individual Educational Planning Team (IEPT) process. Parent involvement is an integral part of programming.

Direct, early, and meaningful communication between parents and school staff helps create a positive working relationship. When we work together on an issue, all parties are more likely to be satisfied with the solution. More information and forms are available on the Michigan Department of Education page, including many resources to help you communicate your child's needs.
