The Durand-Arkansaw School District provides special education services and accommodations in both buildings to those students who meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s criteria and need special education programming. We provide programming that is individualized and inclusive to meet each student’s unique needs.

Parents, school district staff, and the student, as appropriate, are all involved in determining eligibility for special education. A student may qualify under one or more of the 11 disability categories including:

  • Intellectual Disability (ID)
  • Educational Autism (A)
  • Hearing Impairment (HI)
  • Visual Impairment (VI)
  • Speech or Language Impairment (SL)
  • Orthopedic Impairment (OI)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Emotional Behavioral Disability (EBD)
  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD)
  • Other Health Impairment (OHI)
  • Significant Developmental Delay – ages 3-9 only (SDD)

If a student is determined eligible for special education services an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will be developed for students. Parents, school district staff, and the student, as appropriate are important team members who develop this plan.
