About Us

About Us Ripley KidsSince 1968, SEEM has served the students, parents, educators, and specialists in our member districts by:

  • Providing quality-driven, affordable educational programs and services to school-aged students whose needs are so unique that local special education teams have determined their needs cannot be met by local school districts;
  • Helping each student achieve his or her personal, vocational, and/or educational goals;
  • Assisting students and families through their transitions from school to life;
  • Educating practitioners and parents through training programs and professional development activities that are at the forefront of research-based best practices;
  • Providing on-site consultations, demonstrating best practices, and remaining available to ensure transfer of knowledge to the local instructional team;
  • Working toward a future in which all students are seen as equally valuable, where all students can learn, and where all students benefit when they are educated together.
