Special Education Services and Student Assistant Teams


Vandercook Lake Public Schools provides learning opportunities for eligible students with special education needs through a continuum of services and programs. If staff members or parents suspect a student to be in need of special education services, a referral should be made to the Student Assistance Team (S.A.T.) The S.A.T. may recommend a special education evaluation or they may develop a general education intervention plan to address the needs of the student. Once a student is formally evaluated, an Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P.) team meeting is held. Determination of special education programs and services is made at the I.E.P.T. Special Education programs and services for Vandercook Lake Public Schools are operated and administered through the local buildings and in out-of-district facilities in collaboration with the Jackson County Intermediate School District.
