Special Education

A referral to special education is initiated by a written request for an evaluation of a child who is suspected of having a disability and would require specially designed instruction. A referral to Special Education can be made at any time.  Once the referral is made and documented in writing, a Planning & Placement Team meeting will be scheduled to discuss the areas of concern noted on the referral, review existing student data and determine if evaluations to determine a disability are warranted.  For more information pertaining to the referral process in Ledyard, please contact the Student Services Team at your child's school.
