GVSU Partner ISD Information

The Intermediate School District (ISD) or the Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) in which your school is located, serves as your primary contact for special education questions and issues. The ISD/RESA provides many services for districts located within their region, including charter schools. 

Special education support and services vary widely across Michigan’s 56 ISDs. Despite this variation, your ISD will provide you with technical assistance with special education questions, targeted professional development and special education support resources. It is essential that you learn about the special education services, supports, technical assistance, resources and ISD required special education procedures, as your ISD is also responsible for special education compliance within their region/service area. 

Links to your ISD contact information, the ISD Plan, and special education resources are available below.
