Special Education


The Greenwich Public School provides education to students ages 3-21 eligible under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) through a continuum of district services and supports. Students are educated with their non-disabled peers in the general education classes, Special Education classes, and related services.

Special education (student support services) professionals provide direct services for all children and youth, especially those who are experiencing problems that create barriers to learning. Student support services include health services, school psychology, Section 504, social work, school counselors, Extended School Year, and homebound instruction.
