Pine Island Special Education

Pine Island Public Schools provide support to students through a full range of special education programming. A team of special and regular education personnel work with parents to plan educational services which meets the learner’s individual needs to provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students with disabilities.   

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA '04), in conjunction with Minnesota rules and statutes, mandates that school districts find, identify, and provide special education services to students with disabilities. The Pine Island School District works with families and other agencies to meet this requirement and determine the appropriate level of support for students. 

For general information or if you suspect that your child (age birth through twenty-one) may be in need of special services, please contact:
