Useful Information:

Bluffview Montessori School has staff members licensed to provide special education and related services for those students who meet criteria and have special education needs.

Parents and students are directly involved with the school and appropriate outside agency staff in the development of the special education program and the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) for school-age children.

Students are eligible for special education services until the IEP Team decides to terminate services. Students remain with their general education peers in the least restrictive environment (LRE) to the extent the IEP Team determines is appropriate.

Special education program evaluation is accomplished through a single strategic plan to improve due process compliance and program results for students with disabilities.
