Programs/Services Options


At each age/grade level, the IEP team will consider programs and services within the Garden City School district and throughout our Wayne County Partnership districts.  Placement decisions are based on the individual intensity and specialization of need of each student coupled with how best to meet the IEPT goals. The education “label” does not determine placement. Ancillary or related services are available at all ages based on the IEPT.
