Tours and Intakes
Families, case managers and child study team members alike are encouraged to tour our school during our monthly Open House events.
The Deron School works cooperatively with local school districts to place students in an environment that will meet their needs. The district will send student records such as the IEP, educational testing, and social and psychological reports to us. The records will be reviewed and if the student is an appropriate candidate, the district case manager will be called to schedule an intake. The Child Study Team Case Manager, Parent(s)/Guardian(s) and the Student are invited to the intake meeting. During the intake, our team will share information about the school as you tour the building. The student will spend time with Deron team members getting to know your child. At the conclusion of the tour, all team members, including the family and district case manager convene to discuss whether The Deron School may be an appropriate fit for the student. A decision to accept a student is usually made at the conclusion of the visit. At times, our team may suggest the student spend a day at The Deron School to ensure appropriate placement.
Not able to do a tour of The Deron School in person? That’s ok, you can get a great feel for who we are, virtually.
All inquiries concerning placements should be referred to:
