Students with special educational needs may receive services, attend programs or be enrolled in special classes in district-sponsored elementary or secondary level schools. A number of these classes are housed in district schools where emphasis is placed on integrating the pupils in regular classes and special subject areas whenever appropriate.
Children with more intense needs may be served by BOCES programs, agencies, or private schools in the area. Special education teachers, teacher aides, psychologists, social workers, speech/language, occupational and physical therapists constitute a support team for the district's effort to secure or provide help for students.
