All children who are educationally disabled are entitled by law to special education and/or related services that will meet their needs. Special Education assures that each student will have a free and appropriate education.  It provides classified students with teachers specially trained in individualized teaching techniques, the use of special materials and the adaptation of standard materials.

In East Ramapo, we offer a full continuum of services to our classified students. Special Education programs are provided in various types of settings throughout the district. Placement is the location that has been determined to be the least restrictive environment for a given student.
