Marshfield Public School’s Special Education Department is committed to working in collaboration with parents, students, teachers, and the community to empower each student to achieve success.
My child has been receiving interventions, but is struggling...now what?
If your child is not making effective progress through the general education curriculum, despite receiving interventions, they may be referred for a special education evaluation. Upon receipt of the parent/guardian’s consent, an evaluation will be completed within 30 school days, and you will be invited to come to a Team meeting to discuss the evaluation results, determine eligibility for special education services and discuss any next steps that should be taken. Parents/Guardians are an important and very valuable part of each Team! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
Components of a special education evaluation may include:
Observation of the child
Occupational therapy assessment
Physical therapy assessment
Your Team may consist of the following people:
General Education Teacher
