The Dieringer School District provides assistance to students with learning, communication, physical and other disabilities. We strive to educate each child in the district depending on individual student needs to our fullest capability.
Each special education student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which is reviewed and updated annually. Every three years, or earlier if appropriate, a multi-disciplinary team is required to reevaluate a student to determine if his/her disability condition continues to warrant a need for Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) based on IDEA guidelines. The provision of these services requires special education teachers, school psychologists, physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, speech therapists, counselors, paraeducators, as well as contractual services with community agencies. Dieringer also provides remedial services in the area of reading for students who do not qualify for special education.
