A broad continuum of programs and service are available for the students of the Royal Oak School District. Currently over 700 students benefit from these special services. These program and service options are designed to meet the individual needs of eligible students from the ages of 0 through 26.
Emphasis is placed on educating all students in their neighborhood school to the maximum extent appropriate. However, all decisions about programs and services for students must be made by an Individualized Educational Planning Team. Parental involvement in the development, as well as the implementation of the individualized program is critical.
"Section 504 prohibits the district from engaging in intimidating or retaliatory acts against any person for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured under the regulation, or because the person has made a complaint or participated in any manner in an investigation or proceeding brought pursuant to the regulation"
