The goal of the Special Services Department is to ensure that each child receives an education designed to meet his/her individual needs. Our dedicated staff of teachers, aides, Child Study Teams, related services providers, counselors, a behaviorist and an administrative team works collaboratively to meet the academic, emotional and social needs of all students in a supportive and respectful environment. 

 

The department services students between the ages of three and twenty-one years by providing a continuum of services which include: self-contained classes, resource rooms, and supporting students in the general education setting with in-class support staff. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy and social skills training are also provided when warranted in the students’ Individualized Educational Plans. The department also supports high school students through a transition program with a “Structured Learning Experience” giving them the opportunity to participate in vocational/job training within the community.
