Special Education Services

Special Education at Centennial

 

Centennial Schools is committed to helping all students from birth to age 21 connect, achieve and prepare for lifelong learning. Centennial Schools provides a continuum of special education services. Centennial serves approximately 1,000 children from birth to age 21. Vibrant learning environments and a personalized team-approach support each individual’s strengths, needs, and goals.

Special education services and placement are determined by a team, including the parents, to develop an individualized educational program (IEP) plan. Teams always consider the most inclusive, least restrictive educational environment where each child has the opportunity to learn and develop in an age-appropriate setting. 

Each school has a special education team that specializes in intervention supports, evaluations and specialized instruction, and related services. All schools have a lead teacher who is responsible for supporting students and families in special education.  

If you have concerns about your child's development, please contact the lead teacher at your child's school, or call the Special Education Office at 763.792.5231. For further information, see the Minnesota Department of Education website.
