| Welcome to the Office of Special Education || |
|The Grafton Public Schools Office of Special Education oversees the delivery of services for students with special needs, ages 3 to 22, as required by Massachusetts General Law 71B, State regulation 603CMR 28.00 and Federal regulation 603 CFR 300.
Special Education includes the evaluation of students who are suspected of having a disability, to determine their eligibility for services. While it is ideal for students to be considered for referral through the Student Support Team (SST) at each building, parents/guardians have the right to request an evaluation of their child at any time, either through the attending school or directly through the Special Education Department. Services are implemented for eligible students with disabilities who qualify under the law through an Individual Education Program.
The Grafton Public Schools are committed to assisting students found eligible for special education by providing services in the least restrictive environment. Special education intervention is individually designed based on the child’s specific needs as identified by the educational team.
to the staff and students in our School to Work Program at
the high school for working tirelessly over the summer
assisting with the annual "Welcome Back to School" letter.
This letter is sent out to all parents/guardians of students
in the district who have an active IEP along with a copy
of the Parent's Notice of Procedural Safeguards. It is a big
job that includes photocopying, sorting, stuffing and mailing. Their help is truly appreciated!
If you missed it or did not receive a copy, one can be found here: Welcome Back!
