Harvey County Special Education Cooperative

The Newton, Halstead and Hesston school districts in Harvey County have united in a cooperative effort to provide special services for children age birth to 21 years. There is no charge for services.

The cooperative uses a continuum of service levels from total, regular-education integration to placement in a separate facility. Community-based training is an integral part of services for children who are moderately or severely disabled.

The cooperative offers the following support services:

  • Adapted physical educators
  • Audiologist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Physical therapists
  • School psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Special education nurse
  • Speech and language pathologists
  • Services for children who are visually or hearing impaired

Specialists who work in the cooperative are certified and/or licensed, experienced and highly skilled in their respective areas of specialization.

Approximately 5400 students are served by the three districts who participate in the cooperative. Over 700 students with disabilities, ages 0-21, receive services through the cooperative.

This district meets compliance requirements for data submitted February 1, 2012.
