The Point Pleasant Borough School District offers the full continuum of services to support our students with special needs.  Our goal is to increase academic achievement, social/behavioral growth and independence for each student that we have the privilege to work with.  Specialized self-contained programs are provided for students with preschool disabilities, autism, multiple disabilities and behavioral challenges.  The great majority of our special needs students are enrolled in general education classes with the support of resource center replacement instruction and/or in-class support instruction.   

Our special education teachers are highly qualified in the subjects that they teach. Our general education teachers differentiate instruction in order to meet the needs of everyone in their classes.  We have devoted paraprofessionals that work under the direction of our teachers to provide support  in classrooms and work with individual students.  Related services such as speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling services are provided depending upon the individual needs of the students.

Our child study teams are comprised of dedicated professionals.  They evaluate students, develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for classified students and provide consultation and  support  to school staff.  If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact them.  You can reach their secretaries at ext. 5217 for Ocean Road and Nellie Bennett Elementary Schools and ext. 2328 for Memorial Middle and Point Pleasant Borough High Schools.

Our special education parent advisory group is called SEPAC.  The purpose is to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.  In the past, they have sponsored informational workshops for parents.  Please click on the SEPAC link to see the plans for the upcoming year.

Our district is a member of the Regional Professional Development Academy which provides professional development opportunities.  Workshops focus on:  autism spectrum disorder; behavior management; differentiated instruction; social skills and technology tools for learning.  This year, I am pleased to offer parents in our district an opportunity to attend these workshops at no cost.  Please view the catalog of workshops to see specific information and follow the registration directions at:  www.lehsd.k12.nj.us/rpda/welcome.html

I look forward to another successful year working with our outstanding staff to deliver exemplary services to our students.  We are grateful for the support that we receive from our Board of Education and community to continue our work in special services.
