The Floyd County Special Education Department oversees the provision of services, specially designed instruction, and related services for students with disabilities age 3-22 in compliance with the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA); including the identification of students with disabilities through Child Find procedures. The Special Education Department works collaboratively with teachers, school administrators, and families to develop a plan for services and supports to meet the unique needs of each student to ensure that a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) is available to all students who are eligible. These services focus on enhancing student achievement and post-secondary outcomes through the implementation of local and statewide initiatives for students, families, educators, administrators, and other stakeholders. Targeted areas for services and supports include accessible instructional materials, assistive technology, curriculum access and alignment, dropout prevention, family engagement, least restrictive environment, positive behavior supports, and transition.
