Letter to Parents

  •  


    Dear Parents,

         The Ponca City Public Schools provides a variety of services and placement continuum options for students with disabilities. All services and placement decisions are determined by the Individual Education Program (IEP) team which includes parents and school personnel. According to federal guidelines, students are placed in the Least Restrictive Environment in which they can be successful.
         The Ponca City Schools currently serves about 935 students with disabilities, which is about 17% of the total school population. If you suspect that you child has a disability, please read our Child Find information. You are entilted to a free educational evaluation for your child to determine if special education and/or related services are necessary for your child to receive a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
         If you are moving to Ponca City and your child is currently on an IEP, please contact the Office of Special Education Services. We want to assist you and your child in making the transition to our schools.

    I look forward to serving you and the children in our schools.


    Director of Special Services
