Philosophy of Special Education:

Within the Central School District, students with disabilities are placed within the least restrictive environment which meets their needs.  The Governing Board provides a full range of educational alternatives to facilitate this placement so that these students may interact with children with disabilities in an understanding, cooperative and mutually respectful environment.  Students are placed outside the regular classroom only when the student's specific needs cannot be successful in that setting.

Special Education Programs and Support Services:

Each school within the district provides a Resource Specialist Program (RSP) and a Learning Handicapped Special Day Class (SDC) to meet the needs of learning disabled students.

Programs for students with more intense needs are provided by the West End Special Education Local Plan Area (WESELPA).

Additional Special Education Programs and Support Services:

  • Health Services
  • Language Speech Hearing Services
  • Assessment Services
