Special Education

Mission Statement

The Department of Pupil Services is comprised of the Special Education, Guidance, Student Support, Alternative Schools, Nursing and Health Services, and Student Attendance Units. Special Education is the largest of all the units in the department and is charged with meeting the educational needs of over 5,000 students with disabilities in the District while maintaining compliance with state and federal regulations. The Special Education Department also oversees all related services such as physical/occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and school psychology services, and provides on-going professional development throughout the district to teachers and staff. Other compliance issues relevant to the Office of Civil Rights are also handled through the Pupil Services Department.

The lower level of the PACE Center is not accessible for some persons with physical impairments.  Individuals with disabilities may contact Jeffrey Welch, Senior Administrator of the PACE Center at 413-787-6959 ext. 49840 with questions or to request accommodation.
