The Ashland Independent School District is pleased to provide your child with the special education and related services as listed on their Individual Education Program (IEP). These services are provided at no cost to you. If your child has a medical card with a Medicaid number or KCHIP card, it is possible for AISD to obtain Federal funds to help support the cost involved in providing some of these special education services. The quality, type or amount of services provided by AISD through your child’s IEP will not change as a result of participation in this program and services provided through the School Based Program are not counted against other medical plans. The school district cannot send claims to Medicaid without parent approval. Parent permission forms will be available at your child’s IEP meeting and explained by your Admissions and Release Committee Chairperson or you may call the office of Lisa Henson at 327-2706 ext. 2728 for more information.
