Special Education

If your student is eligible for special education, the Holliston Public Schools must provide a free appropriate public education commonly referred to by the acronym FAPE. In order to provide a FAPE the school district must work in partnership with you. You will be a member of the IEP team that will consider your student’s unique needs and develop an individualized education program or IEP, for your student. The IEP must provide instruction that is tailored to your student’s unique needs and includes sufficient support services to enable your student to make meaningful educational progress and to assist your student in acquisition of knowledge and skills, including those necessary for social and emotional development according to appropriate chronological and developmental expectations. Any special education services identified for your student must be provided at public expense with no cost to you. All students in the Commonwealth’s public education system, including students with disabilities, are entitled to the opportunity to learn the material that is covered by the academic standards in the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks. Massachusetts also provides an individual right to FAPE for its resident students with disabilities who attend private schools at private expense, and who seek public special education services.
 Please be sure to complete the Holliston IEP Team Meeting Survey. On a weekly basis Holliston Public Schools, Office of Student Services is reaching out to parent/guardians and students (ages 14 and up) regarding their Team meeting experience. If you participated in a Team meeting during the week please look to receive an email on Friday afternoon soliciting your feedback. If you have any questions regarding the survey please feel free to contact Meg Camire, Director of Student Services at camirem@holliston.k12.ma.us or the Holliston SEPAC at hollistonsepac@gmail.com.

To assist us in gathering data regarding parent's/guardian's and student's experience we ask that you please complete the survey. The survey is anonymous, and the data will be used for us to reflect on our current practices and ability to support families and students. Where available, please use the "other" space to add additional comments pertaining to the question.
Please know that as a member of the Team you are working with school staff to consider a student's unique needs and develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP). For further information regarding the IEP process or in relation to the survey questions please feel free to contact your Student Services Administrator (SSA) or Student Services Director and/or refer to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Parent's Notice of Procedural Safeguards.

We value your input and appreciate your partnership in working towards educational success for your student. Thank You!
