Special Education

The Oyster River Cooperative School District makes available a free, appropriate public education to all children ages 3 to 21 who have been determined to have a disability. The services provided address each child's identified special education and related service needs. Services and placement within the least restrictive environment are determined in response to the child's unique needs and continue until the student has earned a regular diploma or reaches age 21, whichever occurs first.

Students with educational disabilities are defined as those who:

  • Have one or more educational disability, as defined under Federal and State Regulations, and
  • Have any unique educational needs which require special education or special education and related services
