Special Education

The Public Schools of Petoskey provides services in the least restrictive environment (LRE) that will meet the individual’s educational needs. The determination of the setting, services and programs is made in a collaborative effort with the student’s Individual Educational Planning Team.

Child Find

Child Find activities are provided by the Public Schools of Petoskey to assure that the needs of all students will be met. It is the district's responsibility to identify children who are suspected of having a disability that may affect their educational performance.

If you suspect your child may have a disability, the district team can help by:

  • Identifying students suspected of having a disability
  • Guiding you to the appropriate educational services within the district
  • Providing additional information to assist with children who have educational needs
