Summer is Really Here!

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer; it definitely feels like summer right now! This is a summer that I am really glad we have a pool to cool off in.

We are working to get things ready in our office for September. I wanted to share a few updates with you.

Celebrating our Graduates!
As I mentioned in my last blog, one of the most rewarding days for me each year is graduation. I wanted to share with you our graduates accomplishments this year. 

We had 36 students with IEPs graduate this year and we are proud of each and every one. The following is their accomplishments:

  • Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation- 1 student
  • Regents Diploma- 15 students
  • Local Diploma- 12 students
  • CDOS Credential- 3 students
  • Skills &Achievement Credential- 2 students

Office Changes
Our summer office hours are 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. We will return to our usual hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in September.

Our office is losing one of our secretaries. Lisa DeSantis, who has been our CPSE secretary, is moving to the district office to be Brian Kesel's secretary as his is retiring. We will certainly miss her here!

Parent Information
Each year we mail out a copy of the Procedural Safeguard Notice which informs families of their rights under NYS Special Education Regulations. You will be receiving this notification, which was recently updated, this summer. It is on our website and can be also be accessed by clicking here.

Enjoy the summer with family and friends, stay cool, and we will see you in September!
