Mission
With spirit, commitment, and creativity, Blackford County Schools and its community promote a safe environment that supports individual and community improvement through lifelong learning.
Program Description

For children ages 5-21 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.
