MHSD offers a full continuum of classrooms and special education services to eligible students, ages 3 -21, under the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Idaho Special Education Manual (2018).
Special education is defined as instruction that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of a child, with disabilities, as outlined in the State of Idaho Special Education manual. The goal is to ensure that the child is able to access and gain benefit from the general education curriculum. Specially designed instruction is provided through pull-out and/or push-in models, specific courses and special day classes that focus on specific needs. Services and supports are provided for academic needs, related services, (i.e. OT, SLP, PT) functional and life skills needs, and social/emotional needs. The purpose of special education is to allow the student to successfully develop his or her individual potential.
Mountain Home School District #193 would like to notify students and/or parents of students who attended Mountain Home School District prior to 2018, that the special education records that have been kept on file are no longer needed to provide educational services. Therefore, in compliance with the school board approved record retention schedule policy, these records may be destroyed after January 17, 2024. Destruction of these records is the best protection against improper and unauthorized disclosure.
Please be aware that these records may be needed in the future for social security benefits or other purposes. If you desire to review your file or those of your dependent child/children or keep the file for your own records, please direct your request before December 18, 2023 (after this time these records may be destroyed) to: Kelly Shaw at (208) 587-2580.
