Welcome to the Department of Special Education Services

The vision of Marysville Public Schools: "Every student will excel, both personally and for the benefit of humanity"
 

The mission of Marysville Public Schools: "Personalize learning for every student through rigor, relevance and relationships"
 

Our mission drives us toward rigor and relevance in curriculum, instruction, and assessment.  Relationship building is the foundation through which learning can occur.  We believe that through rigor, relevance and relationships all of our students can and will learn.  The Special Services Department strives to focus on our mission by providing the programs, services and supports necessary for all students to be successful.

We are committed to high standards, meaningful learning and outstanding outcomes for all students.  It is the commitment from all members of our Marysville Public Schools community, including students, staff, parents, administration and community members, that will help us realize our vision.

Our St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) is a valuable resource as we meet the needs of students with exceptional needs.  Their website may be accessed through the following link:  www.sccresa.org

Continuous Improvement & Monitoring System

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) both emphasize the need for measuring student outcomes and having sound rationale for educational practices.  In addition, IDEA 2004 requires that every State develop and submit a State Performance Plan. 

In response, the Michigan Department of Education developed a special education monitoring system that went beyond simply compliance with the law to assure that students with disabilities have optimal access to learning.  This system is called the "Continuous Improvement & Monitoring System" (CIMS).

RESA Parent Advisory 

St. Clair County RESA Parent Advisory Committee is comprised of St. Clair County parents of students with disabilities.  This group provides RESA with input for the development of our county plan.  In addition, this group receives information regarding the latest initiatives, trends and legal issues in special education. 

The St. Clair County Intermediate School District Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) has developed the Parent Handbook: Information for Parents of Special Education Children in St. Clair County.
