Directors of Special Education


Hiawatha Valley Education District (HVED) has four Directors of Special Education. Each Director is assigned to a group of member districts. The Director works with the member district administration to ensure all special education procedures are being followed. The Director helps with cases that may be more difficult or complicated. The Director will assist the member district administration with special education teacher observations and evaluations. Some of the Directors are also assigned to HVED programs such as SAIL, WIN, SPECTRUM, and the ALC. Parents and teachers are encouraged to contact the Director assigned to their district at any time.
