Other Support Services

SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
The District's Special Education Office is located in the high school. The coordinator of Special Educational Service is responsible for the administration of the CSE (Committee on Special Education), the coordination of Special Education and BOCES services, and the management of specific special services for students when needed. The High School Special Education Department provides support services to students who have been classified by The Committee on Special Education as having an educationally handicapping condition (as defined by New York State Law).

YOUTH OUTREACH WORKERS
Youth outreach workers are available to any high school student or parent. The Youth outreach workers have an office in the Student Commons and are employed by the Youth Services Project administered by Scarsdale & Edgemont Family Counseling Service and jointly funded by the Scarsdale Public Schools and the Village of Scarsdale. The youth outreach workers see students and families either on an individual basis or in groups. The youth outreach workers and the Deans work closely together to provide support for students and families.

SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS
School psychologists are available to meet with any student at the request of the student, parent, or Dean. Psychologists conduct much of the diagnostic testing for students (see “diagnostic testing”) and counsel students and parents upon request and/or referral. When a student is referred to the Committee on Special Education, a school psychologist presents all appropriate data to that committee.
