Tahoma School District provides special education and related services to eligible children and youth with disabilities, from ages 3 to 21.

Preschoolers and students are identified and provided appropriate special education services in accordance with the Inpiduals with Disabilities Education Act. The student's parent(s) and a team of professionals together develop an Inpidualized Education Program (IEP). We then place students in the program best suited to deliver the services specified in their IEP. Children and youth with IEPs receive specially designed instruction and accommodations for their disability and related services such as speech or physical therapy if needed.

We believe in educating students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. Each student has access to an appropriate learning environment and an opportunity for education with non disabled students to the maximum extent appropriate at his or her chosen school or at a site as close as possible to his or her neighborhood school.

The links on the menu bar provide more information about Special Services in the Tahoma School District.

Belief
We believe that all students can be motivated to be life-long learners and lead productive lives.

Mission
Our mission is to provide Specially Designed Instruction for those students eligible for Special Education Services and to be a resource for general education students, parents, and staff.

Vision
The Special Services community will work collaboratively with district general educators and the Tahoma community to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn and lead productive lives.
