About Special Services

The Mountain Lakes Special Services Department offers comprehensive programs of specialized services to meet the needs of students with varying disabilities.  These programs fall within the full continuum of services ranging from out-of-district placements to full mainstreaming within the general education environment.  

The special education system can be very daunting to parents/guardians.  It is important that parents/guardians have an understanding of the system to allow them to effectively participate in their child's individual education plan (IEP).

The Guide to Special Education Process is a resource to assist parents/guardians to better understand the special education process.
