The Student Services Office oversees:

Special Education and Related Services

We are committed to providing a free and appropriate public education for all students with disabilities. As the Student Services Department, our mission is to ensure that all students with disabilities receive quality instruction that is personalized to meet their individual needs while maintaining high standards of achievement.

Specialized Transportation per an IEP

The Planning and Placement Team (PPT) will determine if the regular transportation provided to all students is appropriate and safe or if specialized transportation must be provided for students with an IEP. If specialized transportation is required, it will be specified in the student’s IEP. 

For further information regarding specialized transportation, please contact Ms. Sue Vickstrom at 860-464-9255 X1200 or via email, [email protected]

Ledyard’s Early Childhood and Preschool programs are designed to provide quality preschool programming as well as special education services to 3, 4 and 5 year old children (not eligible for kindergarten) in Ledyard. Special education and related services are provided to preschool children identified by a Planning and Placement Team (PPT) as having a disability in accordance with their IEP.
