About Special Education

  • The Office of Pupil Personnel Services is committed to meeting the diverse needs (Academic, Social, Physical and Management) of students receiving special education services. Special education is individualized or group instruction, special services or programs, specifically designed for each child. It is the goal of the Greece Central School District to provide the necessary supports and services to students in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). In order to meet each student's individual needs and ensure success in their educational program, the Committee on Special Education (CSE) will make recommendations regarding the identification, evaluation, and programming for children who require special education services.

    The Greece Central School District provides a robust continuum of services, supports and resources in order to ensure the success of each student. In addition to K-12 general education classes and services there are approximately 32 Special Education programs and related services available at both the elementary and secondary levels.
