District 742 schools and trained staff are dedicated to helping all children become proficient readers. Additionally, St. Cloud Area School District is committed to serving students who demonstrate characteristics of dyslexia. However, if your child displays typical characteristics of dyslexia, it does not necessarily mean that your child has dyslexia. (See Dyslexia FAQS.)
Our ‘Continuum of Supports for Dyslexia’ is shared below. Students who have reading challenges may fall into one of the following categories. The diagram shows that students with a reading difficulty may not have dyslexia, and furthermore, some students with dyslexia may not qualify for services. The level of services is dependent upon the impact of the disability on the learner. Our schools will work with parents and respond based on the level of identified needs. Needs are identified through district screeners and evaluation results. If you are concerned that your child may be dyslexic, please contact one of your building administrators.
