The Special Services team is a group of professionals who help in identifying students who have special educational needs. Our team includes a School Psychologist, Social Worker, Learning Disabilities Teacher/Consultant, Speech and Language Specialists, OT, PT and BCBA.
When evaluating students with learning, developmental, or social/emotional challenges, we work with staff and parents to develop an appropriate educational plan. This plan will help the student use the best learning methods to experience academic success.
The Washington Township School District offers a variety of programs for students with special educational needs, which address students’ varied learning needs. The Child Study Team (CST) office is located at Port Colden Elementary School. To contact us, please call the CST office at (908) 689-0681, ext. 2610.
Pursuant to Board Policy #2460, the Washington Township School District will not accept the use of electronic mail from the parent(s) to submit requests to a school official regarding referral, identification, evaluation, classification, and the provision of free, appropriate public education. If you are requesting your child to be evaluated by the Child Study Team, a signed request letter must be sent either via U.S. Mail or dropped off at the Port Colden or Brass Castle School main office. Emailed requests will not be accepted.
