The Newport County Regional Special Education Program is a cooperative program for the towns of Little Compton, Middletown and Tiverton . The purpose is to join together in providing the full continuum of special education services for children identified with disabilities.
We collaborate with all school personnel to support the specialized instruction and services for our students. Parents are encouraged to work with their child's Principal, Guidance Counselor, Teachers and Related Service Personnel throughout this process.
If there is suspicion that a student has a disability which impacts their educational performance they may be eligible for special education services. The process toward referral includes:
- Response to Intervention Team – RTI
- Referral to the Eligibility Team with all necessary data and documentation – ETM
- Determination of Necessary Data and Evaluation Information
- Determination of Eligibility for Special Education Services-Case Conference
- If eligible, Development of an Individual Education Plan-IEP
As special education services continue to expand and change, we remain steadfast to continue our commitment of providing appropriate services for children with special needs.
We are always available to support families and their children. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding services, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached at 401-847-3916
