Special Education
Special education describes programs of specially designed instruction for students whose needs cannot be met without accommodation and/or modification of the regular instructional program. Reedsport School District offers a continuum of services and options developed to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities within the least restrictive educational environment. 

Child Find
Oregon and federal law require schools to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for children with disabilities. Reedsport School District provides special educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through age 21.  Services provided are specific to each child’s disability. The South Coast Education Service District (SCESD) provides educational services for eligible children from birth to kindergarten. Parents, guardians, or anyone who suspects that a child age five through 21 years has a disability and is not currently receiving educational services are asked to contact the child’s home school or the Reedsport Special Education Director at 541-271-9133.  For children younger than 5 years of age, please telephone the South Coast ESD at 541-266-4025.  

Parents' Rights
When parents become aware of their child’s need for special education, they step into a complicated world of unfamiliar terms, laws, and services. Students, parents, educators, and other specialists all play a vital role and must work together to create a learning environment that suits individual student needs. Open and frequent communication that emphasizes mutual cooperation is critical for student success. The needs of students with disabilities varies widely, and we are committed to providing a full range of supports and options for your child.
