To enhance academic and personal outcomes for students with disabilities

Mission Statement
MC Perry High School provides high quality instruction, research-based curricular materials, and state-of-the-art technology to prepare all students with disabilities for successful participation in a global environment.

Here at MC Perry High School our decisions about special education eligibility and services are based upon the individual needs of each student. Students with disabilities are educated in the least restrictive environment that is most appropriate for them. A variety of special education services are available to students who qualify for services. Our special education staff is committed to student success.

Listed below are the five disability categories identified by the law that the Case Study Committee (CSC) will review during the evaluation process to determine if your child is eligible for special education at MC Perry and all DoDDS schools.

CATEGORY A: Physical Impairment
Students whose educational performance is adversely affected by a physical impairment that requires environmental and/or academic modifications including, but not limited to, the following: visually impaired, hearing impaired, orthopedically impaired, other health impaired. This category also includes the disabilities of autism and traumatic brain injury.

CATEGORY B: Emotional Impairment
An emotional condition that has been confirmed by clinical evaluation and diagnosis and that, over a long period of time and to a marked degree, adversely affects educational performance. This includes students who are schizophrenic, but does not include students who are socially maladjusted, unless it is determined that they are seriously emotionally disturbed.

CATEGORY C: Communication Impairment
Students whose educational performance is adversely affected by a developmental or acquired communication disorder to include voice, fluency, articulation, receptive and/or expressive language.

CATEGORY D: Learning Impairment
This category includes two disabilities. They are:

1. Information Processing Deficit- A disorder in a student's ability to effectively use one or more of the cognitive processes in the educational environment. The term does not apply to students who have learning problems that are primarily the result of visual, hearing, or motor disabilities, of mental retardation or emotional disturbance or of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.

2. Intellectual Deficit- A significantly subaverage intellectual functioning existing concurrently with deficits in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period that adversely affects a student's educational performance.

CATEGORY E: Developmental Delay
The category of developmental delay is specific only to children ages birth through 5 and refers to a condition, which represent a significant delay in the process of development. The presence of a developmental delay is an indication that the developmental processes are significantly impacted and that, without special intervention, it is likely that the educational performance will be affected when the child reaches school age.
