The Pupil Personnel Services and Special Education Department makes available an array of quality instruction and support services designed to provide an appropriate educational experience for students. It offers support to individuals and groups of students outside of the regular education program in the areas of: Community Liaison, Family Resource Support, Guidance & School Counseling, Nursing, Occupational and Physical Therapy, Psychology, Social Work, Speech & Language Services and Education Services. These services are available to all students in our schools. While some of these services are provided only upon recommendation by the Committee on Special Education, parents, students and teachers often need advice on how to deal with social, educational or personal problems which arise. To this end each of our schools maintains a staff of professional personnel for this express purpose. To learn more about pupil personnel services and special education, please scroll down and click on available information pages.

Students with disabilities, who do not meet the criteria for services under the Committee on Special Education, may meet the criteria for receiving accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
In order to receive a 504 Accommodation Plan, a student must have a documented disability that impacts on the students education.
The 504 Accommodation Plan is a legal document and accommodations can include, but are not limited to: testing accommodations, program modifications, and a related service.
Parents who suspect that a student may have a disability requiring a 504 Accommodation Plan are encouraged to first explore these issues with appropriate pupil personnel/professional staff (i.e., teachers, guidance counselors, school psychologists, school social workers) who will attempt to remedy academic difficulties on the building level.
If exhaustive and pre-referral interventions do not succeed in helping the student to improve his/her academic standing/progress, parents/guardians are encouraged to proceed with a referral to the Committee on Special Education.
