Mission Statement

The schools of the Wabash and Ohio Valley Special Education District,  recognizing the need for equal education opportunity among all students,  will strive to offer programs and services which afford the  children  with disabilities of the various districts the best possible preparation  for active participation in a democratic society.


Needs Assessment Survey 2019


As part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), each school district or special education joint agreement is required to conduct an annual survey to prioritize the needs of students with disabilities. Our objectives in this survey are to determine both the service needs of the children with disabilities in the districts, and the professional  development needs of educators who work with these children.

IDEA provides that needs may be assessed by sampling the views of parents,  teachers, support staff, administrators, and board members. We earnestly request that you give us your counsel regarding the educational needs of our children with disabilities, so that the best possible services  can be provided.

Every response is vital. Thank you for your assistance.

All completed surveys must be submitted no later than February 28, 2019.
