Special Education


The Midfield City School System is responsible for identifying all children and youth with disabilities who need special education or related services, ages birth to 21 years, who live in the school district attendance zone. 

Students must meet Alabama State criteria for specific disabilities in order to receive special education services.  Their disability must adversely impact their educational performance to the extent that general education interventions have been insufficient in remedying students’ struggles. Such students would require specially designed instruction available solely from special educators. 

Schools will provide appropriate special education services for any eligible student residing within the city unless the student is residing and/or receiving services in a state facility or institution. 

Referrals may be made by anyone with knowledge of such children or youth.  Referrals may be made to the school counselor, PST chair person, or to the special education coordinator.
