Support Services

The support services department at PACT is a team of specialized professionals dedicated to assuring a free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. Our team serves children in grades K-12.

To qualify for special education services, a student needs to be evaluated and meet the criteria for a specific disability area outlined by the Minnesota Department of Education. In addition, the student needs to show that their disability impacts their academic achievement that requires a need for support services. For example, some students will have a medical diagnosis but not demonstrate an educational need and would not qualify. In addition, some students will be eligible for an educational diagnosis but will not have a medical diagnosis.

Student Support Services

Disabilities which may qualify for support services are defined below:
Specific Learning Disability (SLD)
A large difference or discrepancy between a student’s intellectual ability and her/his achievement in the areas of reading, math, written expression, oral expression, and/or listening comprehension; severe underachievement in academic work and severe difficulty in processing information.
