Special Education

To be enrolled in a Special Education course, students must have a current IEP developed by staff in the Bellevue School District and based on federal and state laws. Each student’s IEP will describe his/her individual strengths and weaknesses and will define the goals, objectives, and strategies that are appropriate for that student. Education for these students can take place in a regular education classroom, a special education classroom or in a combination of both. If you have a question about a student’s IEP, please contact his/her counselor or IEP manager.

During the spring, a special education teacher from each high school will meet with the IEP case manager for eighth graders transitioning to the high schools the following fall. At that time, recommendations will be recorded so that students can register for the appropriate special education and regular education classes. For students already attending the senior high schools, it is important that their parents contact their students’ counselors and IEP managers to ensure that the students are enrolled in the appropriate courses and are working toward acquiring credits for graduation. Each case manager will have a list of special education classes that can be offered to special education students attending Bellevue West High School.

Please contact your child’s current IEP manager if you have any questions or concerns about the registration process. Listed below are telephone numbers for each of the high schools’ special education departments.
