Satsuma City Schools Special Services Department
Satsuma City Schools firmly believes that each student is a general education student first. However, to realize this vision, each student who receives special education services should be served in the least restrictive environment with access to the best instruction. All adults in the educational system are responsible for the education and support of all students, regardless of need. Our mission is to provide services that prepare all students for a seamless transition to adult life with the expectation that all students will learn and become productive citizens. The Special Services Department promotes opportunities for gifted and disabled students to participate in educational activities designed to facilitate maximum student achievement.
If you, or anyone you know, suspect that a child has a disability, please contact the Office of Special Services at (251) 380-8208.
Notice of Destruction of Special Education and Gifted and Talented Program Records
Notice is hereby given that the Satsuma City Schools Special Services department intends to destroy Special Education and Gifted and Talented Program records of former students who graduated, completed their school program, transferred, or withdrew from Satsuma City Schools prior to the 2017-2018 school year.
Any former student who has reached 18 years of age may review and/or receive a copy of these records by contacting the Special Services Department by October 13, 2023.
According to federal law, parents and guardians lose their right to review or obtain these records when their child (the student) reaches 18 years of age or starts attending a postsecondary institution, whichever occurs first. However, a parent of a child with a disability who is 18 years of age or older may retain parental rights, provided that the child has been determined to be legally incompetent or legally incapacitated.
In accordance with federal and state law, Special Education and Gifted and Talented Program records that are not claimed by October 13, 2023, will be destroyed. A written request for records to include the student's name, birth date, and graduation date or date last attended on the request may be sent to the contact below.
