Overview-Continuum of Services & Programs

  • To meet state and federal special education regulations, Sudbury Public Schools provides for a continuum of alternative services and placements. As mandated, Sudbury:

    "...provides or arranges for the provision of each element of the IEPs of students in need of special education from the ages of three through twenty-one, ensuring that a continuum of services and alternative placements is available to meet the needs of students with disabilities, and takes all steps necessary to ensure compliance with all elements of the IEPs, including vocational education."


    It is important to note that while Sudbury has specialized programs, not every student needs a specialized program to receive IEP services. The continuum of services means that some students will receive services within their general education classrooms or as pull-out services with service providers per their IEP, but may not be enrolled in a specialized program.
