If you suspect your child may have learning disability, I recommend contacting your child's building principal.  In response to your concerns, your building principal will hold a Response to Intervention Team meeting to determine if additional services are available in the general education program prior to Special Education testing. Response to Intervention Teams are made up of school administration, faculty and staff.  

Please also feel free to contact the school psychologist assigned to your child's building to discuss your concerns. 

Staff assignments are as follows:

School Psychologists:

  • M. W. Cuyler Elementary Building: Sara Boogaard
  • Red Creek Middle School/High School: Jennifer VanArsdale
  • Red Creek Social Worker: Sharon Rosati (Monday and Thursdays)
 

It is your right to have your child tested for a disability at any point according to IDEA regulations---please contact the Special Education Department 754-2045

Please note that I am available to speak with you about your child’s learning needs at anytime.
