Please read the letter that was sent home to all parents of students with special needs March 31, 2020.
 
Mr. Clark has been sending email message updates as they come available.  If you would like to receive these emails, please contact at ctclark@apolloridge.com or contact your child's casemanager/teacher.  Please provide your email and Mr. Clark will add your email to the contact list.
 
We want to thank everyone for their flexibility, understanding, and cooperation during this unprecedented time in education.
 
 
The Special Education program at the Apollo-Ridge School District offers a variety of supports including:
  • Learning Support
  • Life Skills Support
  • Emotional Support
  • Speech/Language Support
  • Vision Support
  • Deaf/Hard of Hearing Support
 
Parents that have children with Autism may be offered various types of support to meet the child's needs although a formal Autistic support classroom is not available within the district.
 
Parents that feel their child may qualify for services in the school may request an evaluation for their child.  The evaluation will be conducted by the individual qualified (school psychologist, speech/language therapist, etc).  A meeting will be held to discuss the evaluation and if the child qualifies, an individualized education program (IEP) will be developed.  
In an effort to increase trainings for parents, I have created some online presentations of various topics.  Please view and contact me if you have any questions.  I hope you find them beneficial.  They are below for viewing.  Click on the links to view the videos.
