CHANGES TO WI ELGIBILITY CRITERIA
FOR SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITIES
Wisconsin’s rule for identifying students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) has changed. No later than December 1, 2013, all initial SLD evaluations of public school students will use information from interventions to make eligibility decisions.
This article is to notify you that beginning on December 1, 2013 initial SLD evaluations within the Glenwood City School District will begin using information from a student’s response to intensive, scientific research based or evidence based interventions when making special education eligibility decisions.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please refer to our webpage at http://www.gcsd.k12.wi.us/ or contact Nicole Brite, Special Education Director, at 715-265-4757
