About Our Department

  • Special Education and Student Services in the Medford School District provides appropriate interventions and instruction, through quality teaching, for students with special needs to overcome challenges in order for them to become successful, contributing members of society.

    The Office of Special Education and Student Services supervises and supports the areas of Special Education, Section 504, Alternative Education and School Health Services. Our mission is to provide information, guidance, and support to district staff and parents in order to enhance the education of the students with special needs that we serve.     

    The reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) requires each school district to report annually on progress of their students eligible for special education. The Medford School District Special Education Report displays district-level data and approved Oregon state targets.
