Special Education Services for Students with Disabilities

In the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District we are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where every student, aged 3 to 21, receives the support they need to thrive. Our comprehensive special education services encompass the full continuum of support, ensuring that each student with diverse learning needs receives personalized attention and access to opportunities for success.
The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District follows the Special Education Policies and Procedures as put for by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

Special Education Referral Process

Our School District is required to locate, identify, and evaluate all resident children with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools within our district, regardless of the severity of their disabilities. 
A physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker or administrator of a social agency who reasonably believes a child brought to him or her for services is a child with a disability has a legal duty to report the child to the school district in which the child resides. Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform the child’s parent that the referral will be made. The referral must be in writing and include the reason why the person believes the child is a child with a disability.
