Student Services Scope

Description and Scope of Special Education Programs and Services:

As specified by New York State Education Law and the Commissioner's Regulations, a continuum of program alternatives is available to meet the varied needs of students with disabilities who reside in the Sachem Central School District.  The continuum represents programs which are available within the district, by contract with neighboring school districts, provided by BOCES or private educational agencies and by State supported schools.

Students are placed into special education programs only when the severity of their disability is such that education in general education classes even with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
