District Developed Service Delivery Plan
Ankeny Community Schools is unified in its commitment, passion, and vision, so every learner is prepared to achieve a lifetime of personal success. This most certainly includes our students with identified disabilities. It is our obligation to provide entitled students Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) as outlined in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). A learner eligible for special education services in Iowa is entitled to SDI at no cost to the family, to meet their unique needs as a learner with a disability. This includes adapting as appropriate to the needs of the individual learner, the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address their unique needs that result from a disability and to ensure access to the general curriculum, so that they can meet the educational standards that apply to all children (IAC 41.39). The special education and related services must be designed to meet the learner’s unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living (CFR.300.1; IAC 41.1).
The Iowa Administrative Rules of Special Education require each school district to develop a plan for the delivery of special education services.
