K-12 Special Needs Information
Special education services in Souda Bay are limited and require advanced approval for reimbursement.
Sponsors (military and civilian) with dependents that have special education needs must complete the DD Form 2792-1 (see Downloads tab) and complete the overseas educational screening process.
Military dependents with special education needs must go through an educational screening through the Service’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) prior to receiving orders. NDSP must determine if adequate support services are available at the receiving duty station.
Civilian employees with dependents that have special education needs must complete DD Form 2792-1 PRIOR to their Permanent Change of Station (PCS). The completed form must be submitted to the Human Resources department. The NDSP Education Specialist will conduct an educational screening to determine if the special education needs of the student can be met at the PCS location. While agencies cannot preclude you from accepting an assignment, you should carefully consider the consequences and impact if you choose to accept an assignment if travel is not recommended by the NDSP Education Specialist.
