A full continuum of programs and services is provided to students who require special education intervention. Grandville has a full complement of diagnostic staff personnel in order to conduct individual student evaluation and provide support service to students, teachers, and parents. Generally, requests for individual student evaluation are generated through the building level Student Support Team (SST) process when there is a question in regard to whether a student may have a disability which impacts the learning process. Parents who suspect that their child may have a disability may request that a multidisciplinary evaluation be completed. For school or parent initiated referrals, signed parent permission is necessary. Grandville Public Schools adheres to state and federal policies and laws.
PASE is the Parent Advisory to Special Education group which provides advisory input to support special education services with our county. For more information, call the KISD Special Education Department at 616-365-2297.
