• Welcome to the Stanhope Public Schools Special Education Department

    The Special Education Department provides quality educational services to students who are educationally disabled and have special needs. Services are designed to provide learning in the “least restrictive environment” and include a variety of placement options such as general education class placement with support, resource centers, self-contained programs, and specialized placements.

    Specialized services and placements are available to students to meet their individual needs. Program offerings are continually assessed to meet students' changing needs. Programs and services are provided to facilitate inclusion in the general education classroom to the fullest extent possible.

    Referral for Special Education Services

    A parent or guardian of a child in the district may request a referral to the Child Study Team by contacting the building principal, guidance counselor or CST directly.
