The MVHS Special Education program is dedicated to providing essential services to eligible students. Special Education offers tailored academic instruction and related services to students who meet specific eligibility criteria and require additional support to access the general education curriculum. A student may be eligible for these services if they have special needs falling under one of the thirteen categories outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).
These categories include:
  • Deaf
  • Hard of Hearing
  • Deaf-Blind
  • Visually Impaired
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Other Health Impairment
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Autism
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
Our commitment is to support and empower students within these categories to achieve their full potential in an inclusive educational environment.
