BRONSON - When it comes to providing services and meeting the needs for Exceptional Student Education, or ESE students, Levy County grades out among the tops in the state.

Levy is one of 16 school districts in Florida notching a perfect score of 8 in the latest State Performance Plan/Local Education Agency findings. There are 67 school districts in Florida.

The 2008 scores were based on information from the 2006-07 school year.

Levy has 1,400 ESE students spread among its schools.

Deserving credit for coming up with the successful formula serving those special-needs students is Dr. Rosalind A. Hall, director of Levy's ESE and Student Services.

A modest individual, Hall is quick to give praise to all involved.

"It's a total team effort," said Hall, who has five people in her administraive staff and 20 teachers. "I have excellent people working with me. It's all about the children - providing them what they need at their schools."

The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires all states to develop State Performance Plans. The SPP evaluates efforts to implement the requirements and purposes on IDEA.
