About Special Education

  • “Embracing its diversity, ETHS is committed to educating all of its students to their maximum potential.” - ETHS District 202 Mission Statement

    Special education and related services are supports and services provided to students with disabilities. Certain state and federal laws must be followed to determine if a student is eligible to receive special education services. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) entitles students with disabilities to a free appropriate public education designed to meet their unique needs. These services can begin at the age of 3 and continue up to age 22, and are to be provided in the least restrictive environment.
