Welcome to the Fremont County School District #25 Special Services page. We are very happy that you chose to click on our link and find out more about Special Services here in FCSD #25. As is the goal of FCSD #25, Special Services staff is committed to meeting the unique Special Education needs of all FCSD #25 students. On this web page you will find a lot of information about Special Education. Below I have listed some important information for you to peruse before going on. If you have questions about your child's education or your rights, please call your principal, case manager or me at (307)856-5250.

The IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act) is your child's guarantee to a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. IDEA is the law that governs special education services for students with disabilities. We take this law very seriously and follow it to insure your child gets the educational services they deserve.

IDEA has three major features: procedural safeguards, least restrictive environment and the IEP (Individual Educational Program). We have included on this website the "Notice of Procedural Safeguards of IDEA for parents of Children with Disabilities." Information on this website is designed to help you prepare for your child's IEP meeting with special and general education professionals who work with your child. A dictionary of some special education terms is included.

Together, we can make a difference, so here is to a great year. I cannot express enough how much we appreciate your support of our efforts to better educate your child. You are our partner in the educational process and we value your participation.
