Special Education

Special Education services are provided at Mooresville Schools for any student whose educational needs may differ from the majority of their peers. Any parent who believe their child may be in need of special education services should contact their child's teacher or may contact the special education department directly.

 

Services vary depending on the best interest of the student. If it is determined that your child qualifies for special services, your child's teacher, school administrator, and our special education department will meet with you to determine your child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

 

Developmental Preschool

Another part of our special education department is the developmental preschool. Preschool programming is offered for students ages 3 and 4 who have documented developmental delays. Please contact our Preschool Coordinator for additional information about the preschool program.

 

Family Services

At Mooresville Schools, we want all students to be as successful as possible. If a family situation makes education difficult, our Family Services Coordinators are here to assist. See their webpage for more information.

 

Section 504

Section 504 provides appropriate educational services that meet the individual needs of students with disabilities in order to ensure that they are offered the same opportunities for a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) as students without disabilities.  A 504 plan is an education plan created under the authority of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It is designed to create modifications and accommodations for students with special needs who are in their school’s general education setting. An example might be a child who has a phycial disability which does not affect learning, but may affect getting to and from class or participating in gym class. For this reason, the 504 plan should not be confused with an IEP. Please contact our Section 504 Coordinator for more information.
