Student Services

Special Education

The South Sioux City Community School District proudly provides high quality services to students and families who meet eligibility requirements within special education. Our special educators support individual students from birth through age 21 in accordance with the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP). Collaboration and service coordination is on-going between parents, administrators and school staff members to ensure consistent service delivery to maximize every student’s potential.
