The Office of Pupil Services provides all students with disabilities ages 3 to 22 the services they need to access their education in the least restrictive environment. Massachusetts’ Tiered System of Support allows students that may be having difficulty in the classroom to get intervention services. Students may qualify for a Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act Plan if they have a mental or physical disability and require some accommodations and/or services. An Individual Education Plan is written for students with one of ten disability areas who cannot make effective progress without specialized instruction.

  • Early Childhood Education
  • Special Education
  • Speech/Language Pathology
