Special Education Services
We're committed to individual success. The Special Education Department is committed to meet the changing needs of students by working with families and our community. We embrace the individual differences of our students and strive to help each student achieve academic and social success by:
Listening, providing support, and creating solutions.
Special Education Services are available at each school within the Milton-Freewater Unified School District to serve students who have been identified as eligible for special education services. Students identified as eligible for special education services must meet the following two requirements:
Federal and state eligibility requirements as having a disability in at least one of 11 handicapping condition categories.
Need specially designed instruction.
Transition (ages 16 - 21) are available to special education students who graduate with a Modified Diploma, Extended Diploma, or Alternative Certificate.
The Intermountain ESD provides educational services for eligible children birth to kindergarten. For children younger than kindergarten, please telephone IMESD at 888-437-6892 or visit their web site.

Identifying Children with Disabilities
The Milton-Freewater Unified School District (MFUSD) is seeking assistance in locating children with disabilities (birth through age 21) who have not graduated from high school and currently are not attending nor receiving other special services from public schools.
Oregon and federal law mandate educational services for children with disabilities. MFUSD provides educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school. Services provided are appropriate to each child's disability.
Parents, guardians, or anyone who knows of a child (ages 5 through 21) with a disability currently not receiving educational services are asked to notify the special education contact person in the child's home school or contact the District's Special Education Department at 541-938-3551.
