Special Education

Rio School District has a continuum of special education options available to students identified as individuals with special needs. Specialized Academic Instruction, Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, Adaptive P.E., Orientation and Mobility, and Deaf/Hard of Hearing are among services available to students, when such services are deemed necessary. The Rio School District provides special classes for children with mild to moderate disabilities on most campuses. In some cases, students attend classes outside the Rio School District in order to access appropriate special education services. Program placement and services are determined by the Individual Education Plan for each special education student.
