Welcome to the Portville Central School Special Education Program.


The Committee on Special Education (CSE) and the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) will review evaluations to determine if your child qualifies to be classified for special education services.  If your child qualifies, we will develop an Individualized Educational Program (IEP).


You have the option to ask for a CSE/CPSE meeting anytime.  We are required to meet annually to review the current program and develop an IEP for the next school year.  Every three years, we are required to review existing data or update our evaluations to make sure your child still qualifies for Special Education Services.


From time to time, you will receive paperwork from me in the mail.  I urge you to read it carefully and keep it in a place for safe keeping.  If you do not understand the information, please call me any time at 933-6036.


We look forward to working with you and your child.
