Mission
The Alexandria Office of Academic Programs provides quality special education, ELL, and high ability services to Alexandria students.
Program Description
Special Education: ALL INFORMATION IS APPLICABLE FOR PRESCHOOL AGES 3-5.

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

ELL: English Language Learners are provided English language instructional support and supplemental services. ELL eligibility is determined by the Home Language Survey and a placement test. Services are determined based on language proficiency level and individual need.

High Ability: High Ability services are determined through testing and data collection at the end of kindergarten, 2nd grade, 4th grade.

The Director of Academic Programs also is the Section 504 Compliance officer for the district..
