Accessibility & Discrimination

  • Accessibility
    An important goal of the Snohomish School District is to assist each student to achieve their full potential and be successful. Some students face certain learning, physical, emotional and developmental challenges that interfere with their educational progress and achievement. Often, these challenges are such that the students cannot overcome them without special attention and support. To qualify for special education services the following criteria must be met:

    • The student must have a disability.
    • The disability must have a significant negative impact on the student's education.
    • The impact can only be addressed through specially designed education.

    If your child is struggling, speak to your child's teacher or contact the building principal. The district has many resources to help students before turning to special education. Families who wish to investigate whether their child would qualify for special education services should contact a school counselor for a confidential consultation.

    The Snohomish School District does not discriminate in any programs or activities on the basis of sex, race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, veteran or military status, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.
