Quality integrative programming is the cornerstone
of providing special education services to students within Schoharie
Central School District. Maximized inclusion is built into each
student’s individual program to the degree it benefits the individual.
The facilitation of this philosophy is greatly
enhanced by the consistency of programs, as well as by special education
teachers and paraprofessionals supporting students in their integrated
programs. Collaborative decisions made by the Committee on Special
Education support students in achieving academic, social and vocational
The special education continuum of services within
Schoharie Central School District includes a menu of services available
to students with disabilities to provide them with access to the
curriculum in the least restrictive environment.
The array of services allows students with
disabilities to be educated alongside their peers without disabilities
to the maximum extent possible and appropriate.
Such services include specially designed instruction
and supplemental services that may be provided in general education
classes; through consultant teachers (CT), both direct and indirect;
related services; resource rooms and/or special classes; or specialized
placement outside of our district. Each student’s program is crafted to
include elements from this menu to best meet the student’s needs.
