Special Education

The Special Education Department is committed to serving all students who require additional support to be successful in school. Our office provides district-wide assessment services connected to the development of individual student education plans (IEPs) and 504 plans. 

Identifying Children with Disabilities

The Redmond School District seeks assistance locating children with disabilities (birth through age 21) who have not graduated from high school and who are not currently attending or receiving other special services from public schools.

Oregon and federal law mandate educational services for children with disabilities. Redmond Schools provides educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school. Services provided are appropriate to each child’s disability.

Parents, guardians and anyone who knows of a child (ages 5 through 21) with a disability currently not receiving educational services are asked to notify the special education contact person in the child’s home school or contact the District’s Special Education Department at 541-923-8265.

Notification of Destruction of Special Education Student Records 

In accordance with state and federal regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA),

Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students: Special Education records which have been collected by the Redmond School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of Special Education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for a period of seven (7) years after Special Education services have ended for the student. Special Education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district.

This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Redmond School District’s policy of destroying special education records upon the expiration of seven (7) years from the date that services end. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state and federal law unless the parent/guardian or adult student notifies the Redmond School District otherwise. After seven years the records are no longer useful to the district, but they may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for Social Security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc.
