Welcome to Special Services
The fundamental purpose of the Special Services Department is to provide programs and services that are designed to support the intellectual, emotional, and social growth of each child so that they may become contributing members of society. The staff within the Special Services Department will ensure that a child with an educational handicap be provided with a free and appropriate public education, which may include Special Education and/or Related Services. The Special Services staff will encourage creativity and enthusiasm for learning and promote critical thinking, logical decision making, and the development of personal responsibility.
Project Child Find is a process mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 and NJAC 6A:14, the regulations that dictate how each state provides special education services. This program requires that local school districts assist with the identification of children from age 3 through 21, who may be developing or learning differently.
