Special Education

Special Education Workgroup

During the 2021-2022 school year under the guidance of former Director of Student Services, Sam McMasters, BCS staff and families formed a special education workgroup to conduct an analysis of services available to Bexley students. The full report of the 39-person workgroup is linked above.

Throughout the process the group received survey feedback and hosted six in-person meetings during which an equity lens was used to identify strengths in the program, areas for improvement and ultimately develop action steps that will begin implementation this school year. 


Delivering Special Education Services

The structure and delivery of all special education programs is strictly governed by federal and state law, as well as federal, state, and local policies and procedures. Special education programs are designed for those with a specifically documented disability that has a significant and adverse effect on the ability to learn. Eligible students are provided with a free appropriate public education. Intervention in general education as well as small group and learning center settings are available in each of the district's buildings.
Additional levels and types of supports are provided students with low-incidence disabilities or significant challenges, such as blindness, deafness, or significantly sub-average intellectual (IQ) levels, or with combinations of disabilities. While the district provides for the education of all its students, not all special education programming is provided within the district's buildings. The district does pay for the program, provide transportation, and monitor the effectiveness of each of these programs.

Each year, some eleven percent of Bexley's student population is served in accordance with these laws and procedures. The district's program is guided by a Special Education services plan that is approved annually by committees of parents and district staff members.
