Special Education

At Stadium View we have a small and passionate team dedicated to provide your student with high quality education and support. If your student is receiving Special Education Services, the family member listed on the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will be contacted by a member of the IEP Team at Stadium View to answer any of your questions and adapt the IEP as needed. Families play a crucial role on the IEP team and we look forward to collaborating with you on how best to support your student’s success!

What resources are available to families?

  • Stadium View is a Minneapolis Public School (MPS). The MPS Website has resources for families with student's receiving special education services.
  • The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC),  pronounced "seek", is a partnership between the school district and parents of students with disabilities. SEAC is a powerful group of Minneapolis Public School parents that is always looking for more members to meet and share their perspectives with the district to help shape equitable district policy and decision making. SEAC also provides and connects families to support groups, public benefits, and mental health resources.
  • Parent Advocacy Coalition for Education Rights (PACER), will help you find the information and resources you need for your family. Reaching out to the PACER by phone at (952) 838-900 or by email at pacer@pacer.org will connect you with a staff member to identify your needs and connect you with resouces. The majority of the staff are parents of children with disabilities and have experience navigating the special education system and disability rights at the local, state, and national level. PACER offers a multitude of programs such as the Juvenile Justice Program that provides individual advocacy, training, and resources to families. The Juvenile Justice Program assists families in working with courts and informs and advocates for student education rights in short and long term correctional placements.

What do special education services look like at Stadium View?

  • Stadium View uses a co-teaching special education model where the special education teacher and general education teacher instruct alongside each other. This highly effective model allows the student to be with their general education classmates and receive academic instruction from the content specialist while silmultaneously receiving individualized instruction and support from the special education teacher.

How do special education services look differently during distance learning?

  • Due to the public safety hazards of the COVID-19 pandemic, Minneapolis Public Schools has started the 2020-2021 school year in a distance learning model. Teachers are utilizing technology to present instruction virtually to the students. During this time, special education teachers are still providing direct instruction in the academic areas of math, writing, and reading and are providing indirect service for social and emotional learning through team consultation.
