Northview Public Schools Special Services
It is our hope that users of this web site will find the links listed on this page to be a useful starting point and resource for learning more about both special education in general, and the various services available in Northview specifically. These web pages are intended to provide an overview of the district’s special education referral and evaluation process, the types of disabilities for which eligibility categories exist, and the different support services and educational programs offered.
For those interested, please note that the Northview Public Schools has adopted procedures for the determination of a specific learning disability based on a patterns of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) model. Those procedures can be found on the “Special Education Eligibilities” page.
As part of the Kent Intermediate School District (KISD), Northview Special Services provides a full range of educational services for all of our students. Although these accompanying web pages explain some general procedures and guidelines, please keep in mind that educational decisions are still based on individual student needs. The Northview Public Schools Special Services staff is committed to providing quality programs for students with disabilities in preparing them for life’s next step. We hope you find this resource helpful.
