Purpose of Special Education
To ensure that an eligible student with disabilities receive a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment that enables the student to make effective progress within the general education program.
Vision for Special Education in Haverhill Public Schools
Through clearly defined and uniform procedures, roles and programming across the district, we are committed to working collaboratively in an inclusive environment where all special education students receive specialized instruction, supports and services in the least restrictive environment to access and demonstrate progress within grade level standards.
The special education process and procedures handbook has been created as a resource guide for the Haverhill K-12 staff, administration, and community. The resources and information contained in this handbook references current and recent changes to the major state and federal special education regulations. Haverhill Public Schools adheres to state and federal regulations that affect special education and children in particular.
