IEP Service Providers
Service providers are highly trained professionals who work either directly or indirectly with your child in support of their academic goals on their IEP. These individuals may work with your child in the classroom, or they may work with them outside of the classroom in another setting of the school building. They may work in an individual session, or in a small group situation with your child also. Each of these decisions are made during the IEP meeting with your input and feedback.

At MSD, transportation is provided for our students who live outside a specific distance/radius from each campus. Transportation is provided by the student’s resident county. MSD does not have a transportation system or busses that pick up and drop off students regularly. Any MSD transportation vehicles that you may see are for field trips, Transition/Work opportunity, or athletic transportation only. Some students will be transported on Sundays or Mondays to stay in the dormitory through the week and return home again on Fridays. Other students will take a daily bus to commute to and from MSD and their homes in order to attend school.

Supplementary Aids and Services are other supports that are provided in regular education classes, other education-related settings, and in extracurricular and nonacademic settings, to enable children with disabilities to be educated with nondisabled children to the maximum extent appropriate
What’s the difference?
- Supplementary aids and services means aids, services and other supports to enable students with disabilities to be educated with nondisabled students to the maximum extent appropriate in the least restrictive environment. Examples include a note taker; assignment of paraprofessional staff (or a one-to-one teacher aide or assistant) or study guide outlines of key concepts.
- Accommodations - Accommodations do not alter what is being taught. Examples include instructional materials in alternative format such as large print or Braille, fewer items on each page or extra time to complete tasks.
