    Approximately 10% of the Mercer Island School District K-12 student population qualifies for one or more special education services. Special education is a federal and state-mandated program that districts are obligated to provide. We are committed to all students on the continuum of learning.

    If you suspect your school-age child has a disability that is impacting their education, please contact the psychologist at your child's school:
