Special Need Students
The Stroudsburg Area School District is committed to providing appropriate services to meet the individual learning needs, academically, socially and emotionally, of students. The district strives to build special programs specifically tailored to the assessed needs of a student and attempts to deliver those programs in the regular education environment as much as possible. Students will learn the general education curriculum with appropriate adaptations, modifications, supports and services in a nurturing, safe and accepting school community that recognizes and celebrates a broad range of talents, abilities and achievements.
The Stroudsburg Area School District special education programs and services are in compliance with state and federal laws governing programming for students with special needs. Some students participate in programs operated by the Colonial Intermediate Unit.
