Mona Shores Public Schools is proud of the programs and services that are provided to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Parents are important members of the educational team that helps to determine the appropriate programs and services for their student. Mona Shores has developed a handbook as a resource to help you, as a parent, enter into a partnership by providing information and answers regarding special education programs and services.
Rules and guidelines for special education are not constant. The handbook serves as a tool to provide basic information and assist you in understanding the programs and academic supports within the district. Parents will have additional information available at meetings, conferences and in the Procedural Safeguards offered at all special education meetings.
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
