Department of Student Services

Department Philosophy

The Marblehead Public Schools offer a continuum of specialized services and supports to ensure the vast majority of students receive an education within the community and to maximize an inclusive learning community for all students. The Department of Student Services supports initiatives, programs, and opportunities for students with a 504 Plan and and/or an individualized education plan (IEP).

Our special education continuum offers a full range of services and expertise that enhances the educational experience throughout the schools. Our many special education programs provide opportunities for students to receive specialized instruction specific to identified areas of needs, while simultaneously providing ongoing flexibility to remain within an inclusive, large-group, learning environment whenever possible. Our general education teachers and special education teachers work collaboratively to create individualized education plans that maximize educational experiences and opportunities for all students.
