About Special Services
Welcome to Fremont School District Student Services Department web pages. The Student Services Department staff includes Director, Maureen Tedor, Administrative Assistant, Deb Steagall, special education teachers, psychologists, social workers, speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, and araprofessionals. We work collaboratively with other administrators, staff and parents to fulfill The mission of Fremont School District – “to provide a quality education that prepares today’s child for tomorrow’s world”.
The Student Services Department, along with building administrators and staff, is responsible for identifying students, ages 3 through 14, who are at risk for learning difficulties and students who have a disability that negatively impacts their learning or school functioning. Through problem solving teams, we evaluate, coordinate and design academic and social, emotional and behavioral services and interventions for students with identified educational needs through a multi-tiered system of support, also called Response to Intervention (RtI) and through special education for those who qualify under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). These services and interventions may be provided within a general education classroom, a small group setting, individually or through consultation from a student services professional.
We advocate for all children, supporting their learning and school functional needs in the educational environment where they can be most successful. Educational programs are developed to offer instruction, supports, modifications and accommodations to meet the individual needs of students. Educational plans are built upon data driven decision-making, the general education curriculum and input from teachers, specialists and parents. We utilize a variety of methods and materials to address the needs of the whole child, including technology devices, apps and programs, evidence based learning programs, sensory breaks and fidgets, and social emotional learning to name a few.
