The VBISD complies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that requires schools to identify, locate and evaluate students with disabilities, birth through age 26. Either schools or parents/guardians may request a special education evaluation for a student who is suspected as having a disability. If the school requests the evaluation, the school must contact the parent/guardian and request written consent (permission) to evaluate the student. If you are a parent/guardian, and would like to request an evaluation, please contact your Principal or district Supervisor of Special Education.


The VBISD Migrant/ESL Services departmen provides academic and support services to migratory children. The English Language Acquisition Program (ELA) or English as a Second Language (ESL) is tailored to enhance English language skills for multilingual students. Migrant Education offers assistance to children whose families have moved across state lines or local school districts due to agricultural work. This program has received recognition from the U.S. Department of Education multiple times. The Van Buren Intermediate School District Migrant Education Program hosts teachers from Mexico each year for the Summer Migrant Program. Eligibility for Michigan Migrant Education includes being under 22 and having a family member who is a migratory agricultural worker. The program aims to support those who have moved in the last 36 months for temporary agricultural or fishing employment. Contact information for inquiries is provided on the website.
