KTEC High School is committed to ensuring high-quality education for all of its learners.
Our goal is to ensure that all KTEC High School students are prepared for postsecondary education as well as being workforce and industry ready. A continuum of services is designed to meet each student’s unique learning needs. KTEC High School provides a wide range of services for students who are identified as having a disability. KTEC High School contracts a talented and certified staff of special education teachers, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and others, in order to meet the needs of students with disabilities.
To receive special education services, students must meet Wisconsin eligibility criteria in one or more of the following disability areas*:
- Blind and Visually Impaired
- Deaf and Hard of Hearing
- Emotional Behavioral Disability
- Intellectual Disability
- Orthopedic Impairment
- Other Health Impairment
- Specific Learning Disabilities
- Speech and Language
- Traumatic Brain Injury
* Please note: A 12th disability area, Significant Developmental Delay (SDD), is recognized by the state of Wisconsin. However, per state statute, SDD services are only provided for students ages 3 through 9.
Through the evaluation process, if a student is determined to have a disability and demonstrates a need for special education and related services, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed collaboratively between the school and the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s). All services are designed to provide the student with access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE) as determined by the IEP. The IEP is structured around the student’s identified needs, goals, supports, and services that are required in order for them to benefit from the educational process.
Students who are suspected of having a disability should be referred for an evaluation to determine whether they have a need for special education services and support. KTEC High School is responsible for locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities through a process known as Child Find.
