Uinta County School District Number One endorses the concept of compensatory educational programs designed specifically to meet the learning needs of disadvantaged children, neglected and delinquent children and migrant children. The Board puts particular emphasis on the importance of the District providing occupational education for the disadvantaged.
It is the policy of the school district to provide for the educational needs of all students. Children with special needs – the learning disabled as well as the gifted and talented – should be identified as early as possible and their learning program should be adapted accordingly in cooperation with the building principal, the Director of Special Education and the Assistant Superintendent in charge of Instruction. The Superintendent or designee shall oversee the development and administration of all special instructional programs and accommodations.
Referral, Evaluation and Placement
Placement in any special program, including programs for gifted, talented, disadvantaged, bilingual or other students with special needs, shall be made by an evaluation and referral process designed to identify children who qualify and might benefit from special instruction. Placement shall be in accordance with state law, Policies of the Board of Trustees and Administrative Regulations of the District. Parental rights of notification and hearing shall be respected in all cases.
