Romeo Community Schools provides academic and behavioral diagnostic services and is responsible for the identification, evaluation, programming, transitional needs, related services and education records for children who are disabled or suspected of having a disability as defined in either the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For more information about services, parent/student rights or referral procedures, contact the Romeo Community School office of Special Services.
Consistent with the Individuals with Disabilities Act of 2004 (IDEA) regulation ss 300.307(a), the Office of Special Education and Early Intervention Services has established the criteria that must be followed to determine the existence of a Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
On or before September 1, 2010, each local educational agency (LEA) and public school academy (PSA) must publicly post on their website, or make public through other means, the process or combination of processes which will be used by the LEA or PSA to determine the existence of a SLD. (ss 300.307(b) and ss 600.600(d)(2)).
Therefore, Romeo Community Schools guidelines for determining eligibility for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) will utilize a lack of response to research-based intervention (RtI) and/or pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) model(s).
