Student Services / Special Education
The School District of Brodhead is committed to providing free appropriate educational opportunities to all students. Using a responsive model and appropriate interventions to meet students' needs is a priority. The Special Education program in the District formally identifies students who qualify for and need special education services. While most students’ needs can be met with support within the classroom, some have programming in a different setting than their peers. The District educates all students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment.
If you have questions about your child's learning, please contact your child's teacher or the school psychologist. You are also welcome to contact the Director of Pupil Services if you have questions about your child's learning or the special education process.
Change in Specific Learning Disability Rule
Wisconsin’s rule for identifying students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) has changed. No later than December 1, 2013, all initial SLD evaluations of public school students will use information from interventions to make eligibility decisions.
This posting is to notify you that beginning on December 1, 2013 initial SLD evaluations at Brodhead School District will begin using information from a student’s response to intensive, scientific research based or evidence based interventions when making special education eligibility decisions.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact me at 608-897-2141.
