The York Suburban School District has Special Education Services and Programs available to meet the needs of identified exceptional students as determined by Individual Education Program (IEP) teams. The following categories of services are available through district programs:

  • Learning Support (grades K-12) - for eligible students whose primary identified need is academic support
  • Emotional Support (grades K-12) - for eligible students whose primary identified need is behavioral management
  • Autistic Support (grades K-5) - for eligible students who have a diagnosis of autism or pervasive development disorder (PDD)

Parents, guardians, teachers, counselors, school psychologists and/or others can be involved in helping identify students who may require Special Education Services. Screening activities are conducted regularly throughout the school year by building-level teams. Written parental permission is required and full rights of due process are afforded to parents throughout the evaluation and identification process. Confidentiality of information is protected by local, state and federal policies and regulations. A detailed explanation of parents' rights and procedural safeguards is available on this web page or upon request from each school building or the District Education Center.

In addition to district-run support services, York Suburban School District contracts with the Lincoln Intermediate Unit to provide services to students which include the following:

  • Life Skills Support - for eligible students whose needs focus primarily on functional academics and daily living skills
    Autistic Support (grades 6-12) - for eligible students who have a diagnosis of autism or pervasive development disorder (PDD)
