Special Education in Beech Grove City Schools
If you suspect your child has a disability, please contact the classroom teacher or building administrator at your child’s school to discuss the options available to best meet the needs of your child. Options may include but are not limited to going through the Intervention Process or an evaluation by a multidisciplinary team. Depending on the suspected disability, possible members of the multidisciplinary team include the school psychologist, speech-language pathologist, general education teacher(s), special education teacher, occupational therapist, nurse, and counselor. Students are determined eligible for special education through a multidisciplinary evaluation coordinated by a school psychologist. Special education services come in a variety of levels of need and intensity of services.
Beech Grove City Schools provides a free and appropriate public education or FAPE to all students found eligible under our State Special Education Regulations known as Article 7 (Reglamento de Educación Especial Título 511 Artículo 7). Beech Grove City Schools provides services for students who have been identified with a disability, ages 3 through 21. Beech Grove City Schools is committed to educating the student in the least restrictive environment while working closely with families, teachers, and administration. The majority of our students attend their home school and to the maximum extent appropriate, unless their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) requires some other arrangements, with their non-disabled peers. We also work collaboratively with Franklin Township and RISE Learning Center to meet the needs of all children.
If your child is at least 2 ½ years of age, but not yet eligible for kindergarten, please navigate to our Early Childhood Assessment Team link or contact the Director of Exceptional Learners, Amy Reeves.
