Special Education Services at Whittier

Minneapolis Public Schools offers a wide-range of Special Education programs and services. To receive special education services, a student must first be evaluated and meet state criteria. Once qualified, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed for the student. Programs and services are provided to students and their families beginning at birth through age 21 or completion of a secondary education program. Special education is also available for students who live in Minneapolis that attend nonpublic schools.

To request a special ed evaluation to determine whether your child has a disability that could be addressed with special education services, put your request in writing to the teacher and school principal. Keep a copy of your written request. The school will then meet with you to discuss your concerns.
