Some school districts have students who have disabilities yet these students are unidentified by the school as having a disability.The state of Missouri has data on the number of how many students who have been identified as having a disability in each school district. The national average is about 13% of all public school students have a disability significant to the point that they can be identified as eligible for special education services. School systems are slow to get these set up for our children who need it. Delay by a parent to pursue this works against the child.
