Special Education Preschool


This web page contains preschool special education technical assistance resources for administrations, teachers and families. These resources are organized according to the three federal early childhood indicators of the State Performance Plan (34 CFR § 300.601; USBE Special Education Rule VIII.E.). School districts are required to provide special education preschool services to students ages 3-5 who reside in their school district boundaries and who are eligible for special education services (34 CFR § 300.800; USBE Special Education Rule VIII.Q.). If you would like to know more and/or request an evaluation, contact your school district’s special education department.
