MABTON - The Mabton School Board voted to renew a contract with Memorial Hospital at Children's Village to help address the needs of students in the district ages birth through three.
Superintendent Sandra Pasiero-Davis explained to school board members that the district is required to provide services for those with special needs but does not have the resources or the staff to do so.
She said it's important to identify a child with special needs as early in life as possible so that he or she can succeed in school. Special needs students begin their education in the school district at the age of four.
