Special Education at Saint Paul Public Schools is high quality and effective. We recognize and support the importance of designing an educational experience to meet the unique needs of each student with a disability, from birth to age 21. Battle Creek Elementary offers resources for Learning Disability, Emotional or Behavior Disorder Resource and Autism (ASD).

Students with more significant needs, especially in the areas of Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Emotional or Behavioral Disorders (EBD), may require services through a special education program for at least part of a school day. Parents can work with their child’s current IEP team to learn more about appropriate school choices for their child.
To gain access to special education programs and support services, children must first be evaluated by a Child Study Team.
Teachers or parents can initiate an evaluation. When appropriate interventions are completed by the classroom teacher, permission for assessment will be obtained from the parents. After the assessment is completed a meeting will be held to analyze the results and to determine if support services or placement in a special education program is appropriate. Parents and guardians are essential members of the child study team and are directly involved in all decisions regarding their child.
