The District-wide Onteora Pupil Personnel Services Department serves as an advocate for all students with diverse needs. We are committed to the teaching and nurturing of children through multisensory learning approaches, counseling, collaboration and case management. We are resources, supporters, and modelers for children, co-workers, parents, the community, and each other. We facilitate the education of children in a supportive environment in which all can learn, succeed, and achieve a sense of self-worth to ensure a healthy, positive future.

Special Education services are offered through a variety of programs and services designed to meet the individual needs of classified students and to provide support within the regular education program. 

Every effort is made to ensure that, where appropriate, classified students have opportunities to participate in the mainstream educational program. 

All services are offered in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Parts 200 and 201 Relating to the Education of Students With Disabilities of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education (NYS).
