According to our 2013-2014 Report Card, Perry Local Schools currently services approximately 477 students with disabilities, which is 9.9% of our District population. Our students are served across a continuum of services that include: pull-out support, in-class support, resource room instruction, self-contained classroom, and separate facility placement. Our students currently represent 11 disability categories. Approximately half of our students with disabilities have a Specific Learning Disability, which means that they are performing more than two years behind their peers in the area(s) of reading, math, and/or written expression. Other Health Impaired and Autism are the next leading areas of disability. It’s important to note, ALL students are serviced based on needs, not disability category.
