Guide To Student Services
At Perkins Local School District

It is the goal of the Perkins Local School District Student Services Department to ensure that each student that resides within our district is afforded equitable access to learning by removing barriers and opening pathways.

The Perkins Local School District serves students with special needs from age 3 to age 21 as required by federal law. Students are served in the least restrictive environment possible, and they are included in the regular classroom with their typical peers when that arrangement will meet their educational needs.

An Individual Educational Plan is developed for each special needs student. Parents meet with appropriate Perkins Local Schools staff to determine annual educational goals and an educational plan, including necessary accommodations and services. Services can include speech and language services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, behavior modification, special instruction through intervention specialists, adaptive physical education and other specialized services designed to insure that each child's educational needs are met.

The Director of Student Services manages a parent email list in order to disperse information regarding items of interest to parents. If you are the parent of a student with a disability in the Perkins Local School District and would like to be included in this mailing list, please email Chris Guss with your email contact information.
