Special Education


Update March 31, 2020:


The District intends to administer special education and related services remotely through Distance Learning which may involve video teaching and/or telepractice. If your child accesses services through video teaching and/or telepractice, the District shall consider such access as your consent to receive services through that modality. Any parent who does not agree to receiving services through that modality should contact your student's related service provider.

 If you do not consent to the use of video teaching and/or telepractice, your child will be provided instruction in an alternative format, such as through written instructional materials or telephone consults. We ask all students and family members to be respectful of the privacy interests of other students. As a result, where possible, students participating in group services should attempt to do so from a location which cannot be observed by others. To the extent that family members observe the delivery of instruction to other students, we ask that you respect the privacy of the other students and not disclose personal information about any student to any third party.

The policies and procedures of Longwood Central Schools are aimed at ensuring the right to a “free and appropriate public education,in the least restrictive environment” for all children found to have a disability.

A range of services, from part-time to full-time special education, is available to allow success in meeting the requirements of the New York State Standards. This is accomplished through specially designed instruction based upon the individual needs of students identified as disabled by the district's Committee on Special Education. Consideration of academic, social, management and physical needs form the basis for the type and duration of services. Special education programs and services are designed to assure that children with disabilities receive an appropriate and equal opportunity for education growth up to age 21. Services are offered to aging-out students.
