Special Education Administration
The Special Education Administration team consists of the Director of Special Education, Assistant Director of Special Education, and Special Education Administrative Assistant. We provide support to school administration, teachers, and families in regards to special education and related services. This support includes the services of a special education director for districts who contract with us, professional development for educators, collaboration and consultation on services for students, Medicaid in Public Schools (MIPS) enrollment and funding coordination, oversight of ESU 13's Special Education Department, and referrals to other individuals and agencies as needed. The Special Education Administration team oversees the PeAK Project and supports districts in their Targeted Improvement Plans for Improving Learning for Children with Disabilities (ILCD). In addition, we also oversee two of ESU 13's student programs: LifeLink-NE and Meridian School.
