Public Notice September 21, 2020

September 21, 2020


(September 10, 2020)

All responsible public agencies are required to locate, evaluate, and identify children with

disabilities who are under the jurisdiction of the agency, regardless of the severity of the

disability, including children attending private schools, children who live outside the district but

are attending a private school within the district, highly mobile children, such as migrant and

homeless children, children who are wards of the state, and children who are suspected of having

a disability and in need of special education even though they are advancing from grade to grade.

The Avilla R-XIII School District assures that it will provide a free, appropriate public education

(FAPE) to all eligible children with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21 under its

jurisdiction. Disabilities include autism, deaf/blindness, emotional disorders, hearing impairment

and deafness, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health

impairments, specific learning disabilities, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain

injury, visual impairment/blindness and young child with a developmental delay.

The Avilla R-XIII School District assures that it will provide information and referral services

necessary to assist the State in the implementation of early intervention services for infants and

toddlers eligible for the Missouri First Steps program.

The Avilla R-XIII School District assures that personally identifiable information collected,

used, or maintained by the agency for the purposes of identification, evaluation, placement or

provision of FAPE of children with disabilities may be inspected and/or reviewed by their

parents/guardians. Parents/guardians may request amendment to the educational record if the

parent/guardian believes the record is inaccurate, misleading, or violates the privacy or other

rights of their child. Parents have the right to file complaints with the U.S. Department of

Education or the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education concerning

alleged failures by the district to meet the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and

Privacy Act (FERPA).

The Avilla R-XIII School District has developed a Local Compliance Plan for the

implementation of State Regulations for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

This plan contains the agency’s policies and procedures regarding storage, disclosure to third

parties, retention and destruction of personally identifiable information and the agency’s

assurances that services are provided in compliance with the General Education Provision Act

(GEPA). This plan may be reviewed at the Superintendent’s office during regular school hours.

This notice will be provided in native languages as appropriate.
