The department determines these services and programs through various mechanisms such as assessment, eligibility criteria, and demonstrated educational need, while providing them within the least restrictive environment. Parental input is always encouraged throughout these processes. Ongoing monitoring of student progress by district staff is essential to ensure appropriate placement and programming. Regular communication and collaboration among teachers, students, parents, and administrators are necessary for student achievement and successful programs.Special Education Parent Advisory Group
