IDEA

Individuals with Disabilities Education and Improvement Act

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that assures children and youth with disabilities a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. Federal and State laws require school districts to evaluate children who have suspected disabilities. These laws affect all school-aged children educated within the Ashland City School District boundaries and all preschool children who live within the Ashland City School District.
If you have concerns about your child’s ability or skills and suspect there may be a disability, please contact your child’s teacher, principal, or the Student Services/Special Education office at 419-289-1117.
