    Special Ed. Info

    SPECIAL EDUCITION INFORMATION

    The goal of the Riverhead Special Education Department is to promote every student’s academic, physical, social and emotional growth in a safe, nurturing environment, as well as providing students with an opportunity to develop all facets of their character to the fullest potential.

    The Office of Special Education supports a full range of services to all children, ages 3 to 21, who display a need for instructional and behavioral modifications and supports in their academic settings.  These students have been identified and evaluated in accordance with IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act, PL.94-142).

    The Special Education Department will only offer these supports after general education interventions have proven unsuccessful.  When students are displaying acute difficulty in school, despite attempts at remediation through research based early intervention services, school personnel or parents can submit a request for an evaluation to the building psychologist or directly to the Committee on Special Education (CSE) via our office.

    Parents and early childhood educators who are concerned with a preschooler’s development can request an evaluation through the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) via our office.

    Upon the receipt of a recommendation from an educator or referral by a parent, the Special Education Office will contact parents to get their consent prior to conducting any evaluations, under guidelines of the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) or the Committee on Special Education (CSE).  These evaluations will include any procedures, tests, special education and/or related services.  Recommendations from these evaluations may or may not include classification of the child as a student with a disability.

    All parents should review the Parents Guide to Special Education, Procedural Safeguards, Informed Consent and other helpful information, which are provided on our website.  If additional information on programs or other opportunities that are available to our students, please contact your child’s home school psychologist or from the Special Education Director, Elizabeth Chappell.  Contact her at Pupil Personnel Services at 631-369-6799.

    Private School Info

    BUS

    PRIVATE SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION REQUEST

    Transportation will be provided for all resident students attending private and parochial schools outside the District to a distance not to exceed fifteen (15) miles from the student’s place of residence to the school. The parent or guardian of a parochial or private school child residing in the Riverhead Central School District who desires their child be transported to a parochial or private school during the next school year should submit proof of residency and fill out the transportation request form at Pupil Personnel no later than April 1 of the preceding year, or within thirty days of moving into the District.

    MEDICAL INFORMATION                                                                   
    As part of a total health program, it is recommended that all children receive an annual medical examination. This is particularly important when a youngster is experiencing educational problems.

    Under certain circumstances, the family doctor may deem it necessary for a student to take medication at school. The New York State School Law permits the school to cooperate with the doctor and the parent in administering medication at school. Before this service may be started, written request from the parent and a written request from the doctor, with directions for administering the medication, must be on file in the office of the school nurse.

    Under certain circumstances, a student may self-carry emergency medication if a physician determines necessity. Please contact your school nurse for further information regarding this option.
