Missouri Schools for the Severely Disabled
1. What are Missouri State Schools for the Severely Disabled, and whom do they serve?
The Missouri Schools for the Severely Disabled (MSSD), a system of day school services in separate school settings, were established by state law to serve those students with severe disabilities referred to the State Board of Education by local school districts which do not operate such programs themselves and which are not a part of special school districts. If the evaluation information and the Individualized Education Program (IEP) compiled by the local district supports separate school placement as the student's least restrictive educational environment, the local education agency may seek determination of student eligibility for services.
