Beatrice Public Schools provides a variety of special education services to students with verified disabilities in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Nebraska Rule 51 guidelines. The specific special education services that are provided are determined on a case-by-case basis, through the child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP). These services may include home/community-based services for children aged birth to three, preschool services for children aged three to five, school-based services for children enrolled in our elementary, middle, or high schools and non-public schools, and transition services for eligible children aged 16-21. Our goal is to provide students with disabilities the individualized services they need in order to be successful in home, school, and community settings. If you suspect that your child has a disability, please contact Jami Jo Thompson, Director of Student Programs, at 223-1512, to discuss the special education verification process.
The parents of children with disabilities are guaranteed certain rights under IDEA and Nebraska Rule 51. These rights and procedural safeguards are described in the following "Parental Rights in Special Education" brochure produced by the Nebraska Department of Education: – less – More from ZoomInfo »
