Program Overview & Purpose

Student Services facilitates the organization, administration, and supervision of education services to all Pontotoc County students, with a disability to meet their unique needs. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires students with disabilities be provided with a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).  Pontotoc County School District insures FAPE to all disabled students by providing our students educational benefit by placement in his/her least restrictive environment (LRE).  Gifted services include enrichment activities and advanced instruction, with an emphasis on higher order thinking skills, research applications, and fine arts exploration.  Special Services goal is to provide the students of Pontotoc County support which will allow them to work on levels of instruction to enhance their educational opportunity within the general curriculum classroom to the greatest degree possible.
