School and Family Support
New London Public Schools is committed to providing a free and appropriate public education for all students. The mission of the Department of School and Family Supports is to improve the achievement of all students, foster student's developmental and social emotional growth, and support a positive school environment.
A main focus of the Department of School and Family Supports is to provide programming and services for students with disabilities. Programming for students ages three to twenty-two is based on the student's individual goals and objectives outlined by the Individualized Education Plan in the least restrictive environment.
When recommended by the Planning and Placement Team, special education instruction and related services are provided to all identified New London students, at all grade levels, by certified and/or licensed staff members. Personnel includes the Executive Director of School and Family Supports, Supervisors of Special Education Services, special education teachers, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, board certified behavior analysts, school psychologists, physical therapists, social workers, school counselors, and support staff.
Parents are valued partners in the Planning and Placement Team process. They are encouraged to attend all meetings and participate fully in the development of the Individualized Education Plan which will help students achieve their personal best.
