Wyandotte County Special Education Cooperative
This is a difficult and challenging time for us all. We understand that for some students, remote learning activities are no substitute for a brick-and-mortar schools. KCKPS is committed to ensuring equity will be assessed for each student whether online or in-person instruction. The District’s plans are aligned with the Kansas State Department of Education to ensure that high-quality instruction, accommodations, and modifications are in place to help differentiate access to content by grade levels as outlined in the Navigating Change document released by the state. Students will be able to access instruction that will prepare them to meet grade level competencies.
Mission: Kids First
Vision: Empowering all students with exceptionalities to reach their potential in school and the community
Wyandotte Comprehensive Special Education Cooperative offers a full range of special education services to children and families in the Kansas City, Kansas, Bonner Springs, and Piper School Districts. Special education services are integrated into the district’s educational program. Eligibility for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) or eligibility under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act is determined by the Student Intervention Team (SIT) referral process or screening and evaluation process in the early childhood setting.
Our goal is to provide a free and appropriate education to each child with an exceptionality who is a resident of the Wyandotte Comprehensive Special Education districts.
The special education staff works closely with all educators in order to facilitate optimal educational growth for students with special needs from birth through age 21. Contact the building administrator if you have concerns about your child’s educational progress.
