Special Education

The Pequannock Township School District Department of Special Education provides quality education services to students who are disabled and/or have special needs. Services are designed in the context of “least restrictive environment” and include a continuum of placement options such as regular class placements with support, resource centers, self-contained classrooms and specialized placements.

Specialized services and placements are available to students to meet their individual needs. Programs are assessed on an ongoing basis as needs change. The Pequannock Township School District currently offers special programs for preschool-handicapped, multi-handicapped, learning disabled and children with autism as well as resource centers within its schools. Programs and services are also provided to encourage participation within regular education classrooms.
