Mission

The mission of Southwestern Jefferson County Consolidated School Corporation is to provide a safe and caring environment which will challenge and develop all students into responsible and effective citizens who care about their family, neighborhood, community, country, and world.

Program Description

Each local school corporation must make available special education and related services to all eligible children ages 3 through 21. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law which guarantees all students with disabilities the right to a free appropriate public education designed to meet their individual needs. It also offers protections for the rights of students with disabilities and their parents, guardians, or educational surrogate parents.

Each child must be determined eligible for special education and related services by a case conference committee. Eligibility must be established in accordance with the disability categories indicated in Article 7, Indiana Special Education Rules 3-16. Children with disabilities are eligible for preschool special education.
