Glen Ridge Public Schools Student Services
Director of Student Services
The goal of Student Services is to provide a framework of integrated services to children with special needs. Student Services professionals are dedicated to providing an overall system that connects and communicates in such a way that all children with special needs are served optimally, and all parents of special needs children are significantly involved in the delicate delivery system.
The Student Services Department is comprised of the Child Study Teams (Learning Consultants, Psychologists, and a Social Worker), Special Education Teachers, a Substance Awareness Counselor, Speech and Language Specialists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Aides, and Basic Skills Instructors.
The department emphasizes compliance with Federal and State mandates; direct parent and staff educational opportunities in special education; transition planning services; identification of preschool children with special needs and provision of inclusive preschool experiences for them; and improved flow and accessibility of information to parents.
