Traditional Public School Districts Provide an Array of Specialized Services and Resources for Students
Unlike charter schools or private schools, traditional public schools are legally required to provide robust services for students to meet the needs of our diverse populations. A locally elected board governs traditional independent school districts. They have the authority to make educational decisions for their schools, including decisions about the curriculum and methods of instruction, and meet the state and federal laws for the schools to serve the needs of all students.
What qualifies a child as eligible for special services?
Many families struggle to find the information they need to get their child the needed special services in school. We have compiled some useful information in regards to learning and disability services in your traditional public school districts.
School districts understand the importance of allocating a large part of the budget to transporting students to and from school. Independent school districts have a large and complex transportation system to ensure families are supported in getting their students to school.
Among the many free student services that our public schools provide is dependable student healthcare. School nurses are the health experts in the school setting, bridging education, and healthcare. Nurses not only address the physical health of students, but also their emotional, mental, and social health.
