Welcome to Ellington Public Schools Special Services Website!


Ellington Public Schools provide a Free, Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) for each preschool and school-aged child requiring special education and related services. The district provides each child identified with special needs specific special education and related services to ensure individualized instruction. Services are based on the individual child's needs as determined in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Ellington Public Schools have established procedures for developing, implementing, reviewing, maintaining, and evaluating IEP's for each child requiring special education and related services. The IEP is based on the diagnostic findings and the educational progress of the child. Changes in a child's IEP can only occur through recommendations made at a PPT meeting or through an amendment based upon the current IEP and information relating to the child's current educational performance.
