Dysart Unified School District offers a continuum of special education and related services for students with disabilities who are identified as such and require specially designed instruction to meet their unique learning and needs.
In order to qualify for special education, a child needs to be a child with a disability, meaning that the child has been evaluated as having a qualifying disability, and by reason thereof needs special education. [See 34 C.F.R. § 300.8(a)]
- The child must have a qualifying disability as defined by the IDEA regulations;
- The disability must have an adverse effect on the child's educational performance; and
- The child must need specially designed instruction in order to access and make progress in the general education curriculum.
