  Special Education 2011-12 School Year:
       Plan for Ormondale and Corte Madera Schools
          Presentation by Carol Piraino and Julie Flynn, 5/2011              

      The Portola Valley School District provides a continuum of services for its students. This begins with a high quality instructional program provided in general education classrooms, and supplemental services available at each school site.  In addition, individualized accommodations and learning plans may also be recommended by the Student Study Teams at each school.  For those students who demonstrate needs beyond these services, a referral for evaluation through the special education process may be recommended.
      We hope this website provides needed information to you regarding this process, resources for understanding and addressing learning challenges and a venue to facilitate communication.  We welcome your comments, and look forward to working together in the learning journey for all of our students.
