Special Education Services
The Beachwood City School District is committed to the provision of a free, appropriate, public education for children with disabilities. Children who have been diagnosed or identified as having a disability and who, through a multi-factored evaluation, qualify for categorical services.

The Beachwood Schools is the host district of the Cooperative Hearing Impaired Program, a 29-school district consortium-based education program for students with hearing loss. Educational services reflect the specific individual needs of each student within the general classroom, resource room, and D/HH classrooms. Various means of communication are used, including sign language, hearing, speaking and speech (lip) reading. Click here for more information.
Limited English Proficient Program
Students whose primary or home language is other than English may need special language assistance in order to effectively participate in school instructional programs. English as Second Language (ESL) students receive direct instruction in the use of English language in pull-out ESL classes. The ESL teacher adapts the material to each student's language level.

Annually, children who are gifted are identified by professionally qualified persons using a variety of assessment procedures. All students in the Beachwood City School District that meet the written criteria for a gifted service are provided with an equal opportunity to receive that service. All buildings and grade levels in the Beachwood City School District apply service placement criteria consistently. District gifted services are accessible to all gifted students who meet the placement eligibility criteria. Click here for more information.

Our school district will communicate with parents, students and our citizens as often as we can during the coming year on a variety of important issues. Among those issues are the following, which we believe will assist students and parents in understanding how we protect and respond to student matters of rights and privacy and options that are available to parents in supporting their child’s education. If you have questions or need further information on any of these issues, please contact your child’s Principal or the Office of Pupil Services.
