RCAPS Special Education Handbook
Students who reside within RCAPS and are determined eligible to receive specialized instruction or related services through the evaluation and IEP team process, and who are not more than 25 years of age, and who have not yet graduated from high school are provided services across a continuum of settings in order to meet their unique educational needs. These settings may include home, community, preschool, elementary school, middle school, or high school buildings located throughout the district depending on their level of need. In addition to our district-based programs and services, for students who experience more complex learning needs, we also have access to, and cooperatively support, programming through MOISD Center-Based Programming.
