Dr. Margo Ferrick, Deputy Superintendent of Student Services, invites staff, parents and community members to meet and discuss ideas for improving services provided to Southbridge students and families.
In accordance with Federal law IDEA (formerly PL 94-142) the Southbridge Public Schools provides special education programs designed to meet the needs of children who are attending public schools as well as to support children who are attending private school at private expense and whose parents reside in Southbridge.
The Southbridge Public schools will arrange for the provision of a screening and evaluation of children ages 16-21 who have not graduated from high school and who are not now attending school. A screening and/or evaluation is provided to children ages 3 through 21 who are unable to progress effectively in a regular education program due to a suspected disability consisting of a developmental delay or an intellectual, sensory, neurological, emotional, communication, physical, specific learning, or health impairment or combination thereof.
Please contact the Office of Student Services at 508-764-5415 ext. 415 if you would like more information about our identification procedure.
