Special Education

The Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that, in combination with MN laws and rules, requires school districts to seek out, identify and provide special education services to students with disabilities.

Students qualify for special education by meeting specific eligibility criteria, as defined by the MN Department of Education. Students are evaluated by a team of professionals to determine if they qualify in one or more of the following disability areas:

            Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

            Blind/Visually Impaired (B/VI)

​            ​Deaf/Hard of Hearing (D/HH)

            Deaf-Blind (DB)

            Developmental Cognitive Disability (DCD)

            Emotional/Behavioral Disorders (EBD)

            Other Health Disability (OHD)

            Physically Impaired (PI)

            Severely Multiply Impaired (SMI)

            Specific Learning Disability (SLD)

            Speech or Language

            Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Once identified as in need of special education unique instruction, New Millennium Academy partners with parents in determining appropriate special education services through the development of an Individual Education Program (IEP) plan that will best meet the needs of the student.  We are committed to the success of all students and take seriously our mandate to provide a “free and appropriate public education” (FAPE) to students with disabilities.  

If you have any concerns about your child's development, please contact your child's teacher or New Millennium Academy’s special education office.
