Student Services

Student services are made up of four types of professions:  Nurse, Counselor, School Psychologist and Social Worker.  These professionals work with the District’s administrative team to support students to ensure academic, career, personal and social success. Our providers use a variety of strategies to help meet our student’s needs that include providing direct service to students, staff members, families, and acting as liaisons between classroom teachers, families, community agencies, and neighborhoods. They also work to remove barriers to learning. The School District of Milton employs two school nurses, eight counselors, five psychologists and two social workers.

Special Education

Special education is a term used to describe services provided to students who qualify in at least one of the thirteen federally identified areas. (Individual With Disabilities Education Act). Students with disabilities, who need special education and related services, are found eligible when they meet the IDEA definition of a “child with a disability” in combination with state laws and regulations. Click here to learn more about Special Education eligibility in Wisconsin.

Students found eligible for special education are provided a free, appropriate public education and are entitled to receive specialized instruction, which could include modifications to the content of the regular education curriculum, or modifications in the manner in which the curriculum is provided. Eligible students are also entitled to the related services necessary for them to benefit from their instructional program. Included also are physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as supports such as counseling, health services, and specialized physical education. Additional personnel, as deemed appropriate, may also be part of a student’s program.

The school district emphasizes a team approach to the education of all students, regardless of need. Should a parent/guardian have a concern regarding the education of a student with a disability, they are encouraged to meet with the team of individuals involved in the education of their child in order to answer any questions and/or resolve any areas of concern or dispute.

If you are a parent of a child with a disability, the Wisconsin WSPEI project may be of service to you. The WSPEI project helps parents navigate the IEP process by building partnerships between parents and schools so that students have the best educational experience. Kate Everhart is the District’s family engagement liaison who attended the WSPEI trainings. Kate will be assisting SDM in developing family engagement activities and supports which welcome, honor, and connect all families to student learning. She promotes positive working relationships between families, students, staff and community agencies and encourages communication for problem solving. We are excited to have this new partnership for our families.
