Johnson County special educators provide support to teachers, administrators, students and parents in providing the most appropriate education to students with special needs. This includes assessment of student needs, determination of eligibility, development of appropriate instructional plans, and implementation of instruction.
Johnson County Schools provide services to students with disabilities in a continuum of educational environments from full day regular education placement to full day programs in specialized facilities. Students receive evaluations in all suspected areas of disability. The Individualized Education Program (IEP) determines the type and degree of required service for each student. Students and parents are afforded all due process procedural safeguards as outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Act of 1997 (IDEA).
