Mission Statement
Our mission is to enhance student learning outcomes by clearing the path of social, health, cultural, intellectual, economic, and emotional barriers. 

Services for Children with Disabilities

The Howard-Suamico School District works with families and students to ensure they are provided
an appropriate public education for students with disabilities.  The District provides programming for all disability areas including autism, cognitive disabilities, specific learning disabilities, emotional behavioral disabilities and other health impairments. Programming is provided in the least restrictive environment.

Services for the hearing and visually impaired are provided through CESA-Cooperative Educational Service Agency consultants or in cooperation with Green Bay Area Public Schools.



Who is a child with a disability?

A child with a disability is a child who needs special education and related services. The child must
be at least 3 years old, but not yet 21, and not yet graduated from high school. The term includes a person who becomes 21 during the school term for the remainder of the school term (the last day pupils attend in a school year, other than summer classes). The law has criteria for each category below to help IEP teams decide if a child has a disability.

• Intellectual Disability (ID)

• Speech or language impairments (SL)

• Emotional behavioral disability (EBD)

• Orthopedic impairments (OI)

• Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

• Other health impairments (OHI)


• Hearing impairments (HI)

• Visual impairments (VI)

• Autism (A)

• Specific learning disabilities (SLD)

• Significant developmental delay (SDD)
