Meadowview School has been in operation since 1974 serving students in Eaton County who are eligible to receive services under the categories of moderate and severe cognitive impairments, severe multiple impairments, severe emotional impairments, autism spectrum disorders and traumatic brain injuries, as well as providing transition services. Meadowview staff work with local school districts and families to provide center-based programs and services to students, as determined through the IEP process. Meadowview does not enroll students independent of local involvement. Children who attend Meadowview school are between the ages of 5 and 26.

Meadowview School Improvement Plan
We are a school in which students, educators, parents, community members and administrators work collaboratively to create a positive learning environment to ensure all students are successful, active participants in their community. Educators hold high expectations for all students. All students and staff feel empowered and supported. Educators use best practice in every educational experience to engage each student. We provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment for students, staff, and parents that enables every student to experience the joy of learning. We believe every student has the right to make choices, to express preferences and feelings and to have that communication honored.
Meadowview School Improvement Goals:
All students will be supported through Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
All students at Meadowview School will increase proficiency in reading and overall literacy.
All students will have the opportunity to communicate with peers and staff in a meaningful way in their school environment, throughout the school day.

What is the Pandemic-EBT Program?
The Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) Program provides food benefits to families with children who were not able to get free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID. You may hear about this benefit from other schools or in the media.
Who is eligible?
Being eligible for this program will depend on what school your student attends. Eligibility for the Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) Program can be different between schools within the same district.
What makes a school eligible for P-EBT?
A school building is eligible only if the building has had 5 school days in a row of reduced in-person hours due to COVID (closures due to staffing shortages do not count for P-EBT benefits).
What could make my child eligible for P-EBT?
- If the school they attend is eligible for P-EBT and
- If your student has applied and been approved for free/reduced lunch and
- Did not receive instruction in-person for some or all the month due to COVID-19 related-absence
There may be months when your student’s attendance was different from what the school reported. In that case, you may be able to have your student’s benefit level reconsidered. Your request to be reconsidered must be submitted by June 30, 2022. In the month(s) listed below, your school was primarily in-person. Your student(s) may be P-EBT eligible if your student did not receive instruction in-person for some or all the month due to COVID-19 related absence in the following month(s):
- Meadowview Offsite Programs located in Potterville, Eaton Rapids, and the Charlotte Storefront: October 2021, November 2021, and December 2021.
- Meadowview Onsite Programs located on the Meadowview Campus: November 2021 and December 2021
