The District provides a free appropriate public education and necessary related services to all children with disabilities residing within the District, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), provisions of Montana law, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Special Education and related services are provided to students with disabilities in the Least Restrictive Environment. Identified students are educated with peers who are not disabled, to the maximum extent appropriate. Identified students are removed from the regular education environment only when the nature or severity of the disability is such that education in regular classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
For students eligible for services under IDEA, the District follows procedures for identification, evaluation, placement, and delivery of service to children with disabilities, as provided in the current Montana State Plan under Part B of IDEA. (Policy 2161 and 2161P)
Parents who feel their child may qualify for Special Education services should contact the principal to initiate the evaluation process. The Livingston School District is a member of the Park County Special Services Cooperative.
