District Developed Service Delivery Plan

  • Special Education is specially designed instruction that meets the unique needs of a child with a disability. The goal is to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free and appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs.

    Special Education services are mandated by state laws and by the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), a federal law. The Individuals with Disability Education Act:

    • Assures all children with disabilities are provided a free, appropriate, public education designed to meet their unique needs.
    • Protects children’s rights and the rights of their parents or guardians.
    • Assists state and local districts in providing education that assesses students’ strengths and weaknesses and assures the effectiveness of the educational efforts.

Transition Alliance Program (TAP)

  • CCA started a Transition Alliance Program in collaboration with Iowa Vocation Rehabilitation Services in July of 2022. The program focused its services on current 11th and 12th-grade students who qualified for pre-employment programming through their IEP or 504. The program has expanded its service to support 9th-12th grade students who qualify. 

    Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services (IVRS) is Iowa’s state vocational rehabilitation program and is a division of the Iowa Department of Education. They are a part of the state-federal vocational rehabilitation system. Each state receives funding to operate a vocational rehabilitation program(s) based on the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
