The Coosa County School System is responsible for identifying all children and youth with disabilities who need special education or related services, ages birth to 21 years, who live in Coosa County.
Students must meet criteria for specific disabilities in order to receive special education services. Their disability must adversely impact their educational performance to the extent that they require specially designed instruction.
Schools will provide appropriate special education services for any eligible student residing within Coosa County unless the student is residing and/or receiving services in a state facility or institution.
Referrals may be made by anyone with knowledge of such children or youth. Referrals may be made to the school counselor or to the special education coordinator (256-377-4913).
