• Special Education is a continuum of services available to eligible students with disabilities from birth to 21 years of age. 
    Guided by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (DEA) and the state of Minnesota regulations, Dassel Cokato School District ensures all students identified as receiving special education services receive a free and appropriate public education.  This mandate follows the Individual Education Plan (IEP) development process, which results in a comprehensive assessment plan addressing the strengths and needs specific to the student. 

    Programs and services for students who have met special education eligibility in any of the 13 disability areas identified in Minnesota Rules Chapter 3525 may receive programming in their neighborhood school and in a regular class setting with peers, as appropriate.
