• Welcome to Minidoka County School District 331 Special Services

     
    Special education includes specially designed instruction and related services provided to students with disabilities ages 3 to 21.  The district serves more than 500 students with disabilities and special needs in a wide variety of programs.
     
    When there is a question as to whether a student needs special education services, an Evaluation Team, which always includes the parent, will meet to determine whether or not the child is a person with a disability and whether or not the child meets eligibility for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
     
    Children ages 3-5 may qualify for early intervention services provided by the district’s special education pre-school program.   For more information on Child Find preschool screening dates, please click here.
     
    Students qualify for special education services if they are determined to have a disability and are in need of a specially designed instructional program to succeed in school. A student's disability may be in one or more areas: specific learning, emotional, mental, physical, developmental delay autism, health impairment, hearing, vision, or speech/language impairment.
     
    If you believe your student may have a disability and needs special education services, contact your student’s building administrator.  For additional information, please contact Sherry Bingham, Special Services Director.
