About Tri-County

Tri-County Special Education is actually an agreement among all the school districts in Jackson, Perry, and Union Counties, that Tri-County (TCSE) is responsible for assuring that all exceptional children, ages 3-21, receive a free and appropriate education. Tri-County provides assistance to all the districts in the following areas:

  • Child Find
  • Educational Assessment
  • Program Planning
  • Service Development
  • Parent Consultation
  • Coordination With Other Agencies
  • Compliance With Federal and State Guidelines

A full continuum of special education options is available to children with special needs, ranging from consultation with regular classroom teachers to partial day resource assistance in the local school or full-time special education classes. Additional related services, such as speech and language therapy, physical and occupational therapy, social work, and vision/hearing services may also be provided as educationally appropriate.
