Office Of Special Services E Learning 


Welcome to Special Services

We all have special needs at various times in our lives. Sometimes individuals are able to seek out and/or realize how and what supports are necessary to meet their own special needs; others may not know what, how, or where to find support.

If you feel your child or someone else's child has a special need, please contact our office or a building principal.  We will offer suggestions on how to access support for the identified special need(s) of the student to ensure a positive educational experience.

Rationale on 10 or more students taking the Alternative Assessment 

Rationale: The Huron School District strives to keep students in the district.  We offer programs for students with severe disabilities and needs.  Our Developmental Learning Classrooms and Social Skills Classrooms at all levels across the district implements individualized instruction, specific behavior interventions, adaptive behavior strategies and instruction and curriculum driven by the South Dakota Core Content Connectors.  We also serve a vast array of ESL students that have moved in with additional needs.  We strive to educate all students in our district with the programs offered, least restrictive environments and providing services locally instead of out of district placements. We offer programs that can meet the intensive and structured learning environments for students in the least restrictive way in order for them to not move to an out of district placement.  The Huron School District annually reviews the criteria for the Alternative Assessment at each IEP meeting to determine if individual students meet the criteria.  The IEP teams use the Guidance for IEP Teams on Participation Decisions on the Alternate Assessment of South Dakota Content Standards and look at data to see if students continue to meet the criteria.
