The Department of Student Services provides for needs of students with disabilities between the ages of three and twenty-one. Our Child Study Team members include a Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultant, a Speech-Language Specialist, Psychologists and Social Workers who work in conjunction with our Special Education teachers and paraprofessionals. Students in need of special education and related services, including students with disabilities attending non-public schools, are identified and evaluated according to N.J.A.C. 6A:14:3.3 and decisions are made in collaboration with Child Study Team members, the parents and any other individuals as necessary.
Our District offers a full continuum of placements for special education and related services. Educational options include placement in general education, in-class resource programs, replacement resource programs and special class programs both in and out of district.
Ultimately, our focus is to actively engage every student so that they each experience genuine success every day. Learning is not a spectator sport and we look forward to engaging with both you and your child. As a team, we are passionate about our students and we enjoy working together to ensure that we meet their needs along with those of their families and our Palmyra District Community.
