Student Support Services

What is Support Services?

The Department of Student Support Services includes:

  • Parent As Teachers Program
  • Early Childhood At-Risk
  • District Special Education Programs

The educational programs in Haysville are concerned with all phases of individual growth. Students will be provided with sound academic opportunities to facilitate their physical, emotional, social, and vocational potential. Haysville Public Schools exist for the benefit of each student regardless of his or her capacity for learning. It is our task to provide demanding programs appropriate for all levels of ability. The goal of the Special Education Department is to implement this philosophy into practice for students with disabilities and to insure that children with disabilities receive a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment.

 

Educational Services for All children

It is our goal to serve every disabled, school-aged child who resides in our district. If you are aware of a student who resides in the district and meets one or more of the following disabling conditions, please contact our district office or your local school: Autism, Deaf-Blind, Deaf, Emotional Disturbance, Hearing Impairment, Intellectual Disability, Multiple Disability, Multiple Disability with Severe Sensory Impairment, Orthopedic Impairment, Other Health Impairment, Preschool (Speech/Language Impairment, Moderate Delay, Severe Delay), Specific Learning Disability, Speech and Language Impairment, Traumatic Brain Injured, Visual Impairment, etc. - during which your parent educator will share age-appropriate child development and parenting information, help you learn to observe your child, and address your parenting concerns.

 

Childfind

Haysville Public Schools provides public notice to all patrons of the availability of special education services and related services for all students (ages birth through 21 years of age) residing within the school district. This includes children who attend public or private schools, home school, migrant, homeless or are wards of the State.

Student Services

Assistive Technology Services include any service that directly assists an individual with a disability in the selection, acquisition, or use of an Assistive Technology devise.” (IDEA, Title 34 CFR, Se. 300.6)

 

If a student needs Assistive Technology (AT) to receive a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), the school must provide it at no cost to the parents. The IDEA requirements state, “each public agency shall ensure that AT devices or AT services or both…are made available to a child with a disability if required as a part of the child’s
• special education
• related services
• supplementary aids and services
(IDEA, Title 34 CFR, 300.308)

All children eligible to receive specially designed instruction through an IEP must be considered for assistive technology. The team must ask, “What is it we want the student to be able to do within his/her education program, that he/she isn’t able to because of his/her disability?”

 

U.S.D. #261 offers a continuum of services to students with autism spectrum disorders.  Many identified students are served through an inclusion or resource setting in their neighborhood schools.  Students who are not successful in one of these settings may be referred to the communication disorders classroom which is located at Rex Elementary School.  This class serves students grades  Kindergarten through 5th grade. 

The focus of this program is to develop communication skills, social skills, and academic skills.  Students receive communication support through visual supports, visual schedules, and routines.  Social skills are enhanced and rehearsed through structured activities within the building and through weekly community outings.  Appropriate behavior is also addressed during social skills using positive behavior support, social stories, and the use of a safe place.  Academic skills are supported through the use of work bins, technology, and multi-sensory approaches.

 

Haysville Public Schools provides public notice to all patrons of the availability of special education services and related services for all students (ages birth through 21 years of age) residing within the school district. This includes children who attend public or private schools, home school, migrant, homeless or are wards of the State.

The main goal of general education interventions is to provide a systemic approach to meet the needs of all students and to use resources in the most effective and efficient way enabling every child to be successful. This is accomplished by:

 

  • Being prevention oriented by knowing who needs support early and putting supports in place

  • Implementing evidence-based interventions for all students tailoring interventions based on student need.

  • Using progress monitoring data to know when to make changes in instruction and interventions.

These practices set up a system to assist at-risk students who are already experiencing school difficulties with interventions that can prevent additional problems.

District Mandt Trainer: Karon Waters

Proactive interaction is practiced to eliminate unnecessary conflicts. The students are taught appropriate skills in dealing with their emotions prior to, during, and after a challenging situation. The Mandt goal is not to repress or destroy emotions but to accept the feelings and direct them to constructive ends.

The Mandt System is utilized by staff throughout the district when working with students with disabilities. This training supports the district belief that all individuals should be seen as people first and that a person has the right to a personal identity, the right to normalization, and the right to the least restrictive and most appropriate environment.

The Mandt System training is provided to USD 261 employees yearly.

Therapy services are provided in a variety of formats including direct service, consultation with general and special education staff, development of accommodations and modifications and staff training in serving students with activities embedded in the educational day within the Least Restricitve Environment. The student must meet eligibility requirements to qualify for services as a portion of their educational program.
