The Warrick County School Corporation is committed to providing a free and appropriate public education to all students in Warrick County with disabilities. Special education services are provided to students with learning disabilities, mild, moderate, or severe cognitive disabilities.
Students with emotional disabilities, vision impairments, and hearing impairments also receive services. In addition, speech and language services are provided at each school. Related services such as behavior management, occupational therapy, physical therapy, interpreting, job coaching, and special transportation are provided for students with disabilities.
It is the goal of the Warrick County School Corporation to educate students with special needs in the least restrictive environment to the extent possible. The WCSC recognizes the social and academic benefits of being integrated with typically developing peers. Therefore, a full continuum of services, ranging from inclusive to consultative, are provided for students with disabilities.
Eligibility for special education services is determined by individual student evaluation and the Case Conference Committee procedures in accordance with state and federal regulations.
Early Childhood Screenings 2023-2024
State and federal law requires local school districts to provide a screening process for preschool children ages 3-5 (who are not attending kindergarten). The purpose of the screening is to help identify any child who may be in need of early special education services so that an intervention program can be developed if needed. This could include students with delays in communication, motor skills, adaptive, social, or conceptual development.
While the Warrick County School Corporation tries to raise awareness about the screening with all parents of preschool-aged children, it is NOT necessary for all children to attend. It is up to the parents to decide if their child may need this developmental screening due to concerns about potential developmental delays.
