 The Office of Pupil Personnel Services provides a full-range of services from part-time to full-time special education to all students ages 3 -21, who have been identified and evaluated in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  In addition, the district offers a high school life-skills class and a middle school self-contained classroom for students with emotional disabilities.

  The procedures and policies of the Sag Harbor School District are designed to ensure the right to a “free and appropriate public education, in the least restrictive environment” for all children found to have a disability. 

  The Office of Pupil Personnel Services strives to promote students’ academic, physical, and social/emotional growth in a safe environment that allows students to reach their maximum potential in all areas of their development.  This is accomplished by providing specially designed instruction based on the individual needs of students identified as disabled by the district’s Committee on Special Education (CSE) or Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE).  The classroom instruction is supplemented by other professionals including special education instructors, reading teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, registered nurses, psychologists, social workers, and guidance counselors.
