Special Education at Portsmouth Middle School and New Franklin School


                              Special Education

The Portsmouth School District makes available a free, appropriate public
education to all children ages 3 to 21 who have been determined to have a
disability. The services provided address each child's identified special
education and related service needs. Services and placement within the least
restrictive environment are determined in response to the child's unique 
and continue until the student has earned a regular diploma or reaches age 
whichever occurs first.

Students with educational disabilities are defined as those who: 
	* Have one or more educational disability, as defined under Federal
               and  State Regulations, and
	* Have any unique educational needs which require specially designed 
               instruction and related services.
