The Scituate Public Schools provided services for students with special needs in accordance with the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and state (603 CMR 28.00) regulations.
Scituate Public Schools provides a continuum of special education services for students based on individual needs and Team recommendations. These services may include, but are not limited to, specially designed instruction for academics, speech/language, occupational therapy, behavior, counseling, social skills, study skills and physical therapy.
Teachers and specialists work collaboratively with parents/guardians of students identified as requiring special education services. In order to provide the highest quality education and set high expectations for our students all input from staff and parents are considered in developing programming. We always welcome teacher and parent questions and concerns.
Often parents/guardians have questions regarding:
- The evaluation process
- Eligibility for special education
- IEP development
- Team process
- Programming options
Students that are already receiving special education services are assigned a liaison or contact person that is identified on the student's IEP. The contact person is always happy to address parent questions or direct you to the appropriate person to help you.
For parents wanting to learn more about the special education process, you should feel free to contact the Team Chairperson assigned to your child's school or contact the special education office. Additional information regarding special education and contact information is provided on the special education website.
