  • An important letter to parents and guardians regarding the popular Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" has been sent by the Superintendent...

    The letter, dated April 24th, 2017, is accompanied by a document from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) that contains information for parents and guardians to read and take into consideration. Our District recognizes that schools have "an important role in preventing youth suicide, and being aware of potential risk factors in students' lives is vital to this responsibility."   Feel free to contact Dr. Montesano's office should you need more information or support.

    Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. The Dr. Montesano's letter and the NASP document are attached, below.

Welcome to Pupil Personnel Services and Special Education

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.
