SCCS Special Education Review|
During the next year, the district will conduct a comprehensive review of our current service model for students with disabilities in order to build the best possible program within our resources. The process will commence with a review of district policy and procedures and an assessment of the full-range of special education services provided to students of Southern Cayuga. The process will be inclusive in nature and will seek input from the school community, along with advice from outside experts. The idea of community is crucial to the reflective process where organizational and individual growth is achieved. Upon completion, the findings of the review process and recommendations will be presented to the SCCS Board of Education.
