Mustang Public Schools is committed to providing comprehensive educational services to all students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. The district makes every effort to contact, evaluate and educate all children suspected of having a disability, ages 3 through 21, under the provisions established by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997 (IDEA). Mustang Public Schools also works with the Sooner Start Early Intervention Program in referrals for identification, evaluation and services for eligible infants and toddlers, from birth through two years of age.
