Learning Variations (Special Education Services Notice)
In cooperation with the Richfield School District, AHA wants to be sure that parents know that students with disabilities attending elementary or secondary private schools in Richfield may be eligible for special education services through the Richfield Public Schools.
Any time throughout the school year, if a parent believes a child may be eligible for special education services, the parent should contact AHA's Learning Variations Coordinator for more information.
