Carson City-Crystal K-12 Special Education

Committed to Individual Success!

The Special Education Department is committed to meet the changing needs of students by working with families and our community.  We embrace the individual differences of our students and strive to help each student achieve academic and social success by listening, providing support, and creating solutions.

Special education services are available at each school within the Carson City-Crystal Area School District to serve students who have been identified as eligible for special education services.  

Students identified as eligible for special education services must meet the following two requirements:

  • Federal and state eligibility requirements as having a disability in at least one of 11 handicapping condition categories.

  • Need specially designed instruction.

Per Federal law, Carson City-Crystal will provide services based on a Least Restrictive guideline in order to give all students as much access to the general education curriculum as possible.   

Transition services are available to special education students who are scheduled to graduate with a Certificate of Completion, HS Diploma, or Alternative Diploma.

Contact our administrative offices at 989-584-3138 Ext. 3244 if you have any questions or input regarding special education services or programs at the Carson City-Crystal Area School District.

Identifying Children with Disabilities

Carson City-Crystal is seeking assistance in locating children with disabilities who have not graduated from high school and currently are not attending nor receiving other special services from public schools.

Michigan and federal law mandate educational services for children with disabilities.  

CC-C provides educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school.  Services provided are appropriate to each child's disability.

Parents, guardians, or anyone who knows of a child with a disability currently not receiving educational services is asked to notify the special education contact person in the child's home school or contact the District's Special Education Director, Christine Bentley, at 989-584-3138 Ext. 3210.
