Goodrich ISD is a participating member of the Polk County Special Services Cooperative.
Access helpful information regarding transition services.
In partnership with the Polk County Special Services Cooperative, Goodrich ISD provides special education services to children with disabilities to meet their unique needs. Students must be identified as in need of special education through a referral and evaluation process. The district also provides related services including transportation, speech therapy, occupational and physical therapy, adaptive physical education, and individual or group counseling.
To qualify for special education, students must have been evaluated in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, and have a disability such as the following:
speech or language impairment
hearing impairment including deafness
visual impairment including blindness
traumatic brain injury
other health impairment
a specific learning disability
Special education is offered at no cost to parents to meet the needs of a child with a disability.
The instruction offered through special education has been changed in content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address the unique needs of a child that will result from that child's disability and to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum so that he or she can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.
The Special Education Information Center (SPEDTex) provides resources and interactive features for increasing family awareness of disabilities and special education processes, with the goal of improving partnerships between schools and families.
