HighMark Charter School’s Special Education Department is attempting identify all children with disabilities who are currently enrolled at the school.
If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech and/or behavior or is experiencing slow development atypical for his/her age, physical impairments or learning difficulty then he/she may be a child with a disability. Disabilities that could interfere with education include: autism, deaf-blindness, deafness, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, intellectual disabilities, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, specific learning disabilities, communication disorders, traumatic brain injury and visual impairment. Federal law mandates the provision of free educational programs and/or services for such persons.
If you know of a current HighMark student who might qualify for Special Education services, including a student suspected of having a disability even though he/she is advancing from grade to grade, please contact HighMarks’ SpEd Department at 801.476.4627 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are the parent of a child with an IEP enrolled in a public school, the district is required by Utah Code Section 53A-1a-704 (10) to inform you of the availability of a scholarship to attend a private school through the Carson Smith Scholarship Program. Further information, including applications can be found at http://www.schools.utah.gov/sars/Quick-Links/Carson-Smith-Scholarship.aspx.
