Student Services

Director: Bridget Antonucci
Administrative Assistant: Louise San Nicola ext. 3350

Special Services works collaboratively with district staff, parents, and students to provide a free and appropriate public education to any student with a disability, ages 3 through 21, who is determined to be eligible for special education programs and/or services, per N.J.A.C. 6A:14. The administrative team provides leadership for a wide range of professional staff members and support personnel, including school psychologists, learning consultants, social workers, speech/language specialists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, sign language interpreters, special education teachers, and instructional assistants.

The Upper Freehold Regional School District provides a continuum of special education and related services to eligible students, including out-of-district programs in public and private settings. Services are designed to provide learning in a least restrictive environment and will include various placement options, such as in-district self-contained classes, resource in-class and pull-out replacement programs, general education programs with appropriate accommodations and modifications, and related services. All programs and services are based upon individual students' needs as determined by each student's individualized education plan (IEP).
