Special Education Overview
Marshall Public Schools provides special education and related services to children from Birth to age 21. Students must meet the state of Minnesota eligibility criteria to be eligible to receive services determined through an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) meeting or an Individual Education Program (IEP) meeting. These plans describe the student's Present Levels of Academic and Functional Performance, special education needs, goals and objectives, accommodations & modifications, and services designed to meet the student's individual needs. These plans are designed to provide a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for the student to make adequate progress.
The Restrictive Procedures Plan outlines Marshall Public Schools procedures for implementing the use of restrictive procedures when an emergency situation exists. This plan can be reviewed here: Restrictive Procedures Plan
