Ensuring that children with disabilities have the same access to education as their non-disabled peers is a priority for schools and educational institutions. To this end, Section 504 of the Education for People with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires that the needs of students with disabilities be met in the same way as those of non-disabled people. In Bellevue, Idaho, the Blaine County School District is dedicated to providing equal access to all students, regardless of sex, race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, veteran or military status, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, disability, or the use of a trained guide dog or service animal. The Bellevue School District offers special education programs to students who meet the eligibility requirements of IDEA.
All schools in the district have special education professionals and related service providers, but not all schools offer the same programs. Students seeking accommodations must submit an application to the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and document the nature and extent of their disability in accordance with the 2500P procedure. The DRC staff can provide flexibility and additional adjustments to specific academic policies and procedures to help students with a documented disability achieve their academic and professional goals. Bellevue College also complies with all federal and Washington state laws and regulations related to providing services to students with disabilities. The Blaine County School District is committed to providing equal access to all students with disabilities.

By understanding their rights and working together with school personnel, parents can ensure that their children receive the best possible education.
