Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the Special Education Department web page of the Clarke Community School District. We recognize that parents/guardians are integral participants in the development of their child's educational programming. It is important that the schools and parents work together in order for all of our students to benefit from their school experience.

The referral of your child to determine the need for Special Education Instruction and Related Services may be a new experience that poses many questions for you. We encourage you to call any member of our department who will be ready to answer questions, provide information and listen to your concerns.

This website is being designed to provide you with current information on a variety of topics that may be of interest. We have made a commitment to enhance our website as the year progresses, so please check back. In addition, as this website is developed, we would value feedback from you. We hope you find it helpful as we continue to work as partners in order to provide a happy and successful school experience for your child.
