All responsible public agencies are required to locate, evaluate and identify children with disabilities who are under the jurisdiction of the agency, regardless of the severity of the disability, including children that are attending private schools, highly mobile children as migrant and homeless children, and children who are suspected of having a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade. The Wright City R-II School District will assure that it will provide a free and appropriate education (FAPE) to all eligible children with disabilities between the ages of 3-21 under its jurisdiction. Disabilities include autism, deaf/blindness, emotional disorders, hearing impairment/deafness, mental retardation, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impaired, specific learning disabilities, speech and/or language, traumatic brain injury, visual impairment/blindness, and a young child with a developmental delay.
The Wright City R-II School District provides special education services and related services to students in a variety of placements, which are determined based upon the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) as governed by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). Placements range from teachers providing special education instruction in the regular classroom to students being served in a self-contained special education setting, or in a separated public school setting. Services are provided to students that are school aged as well as pre-school aged children.
