Preschool Workshop Series
The Pupil Personnel Services and Special Education Department's Preschool Workshop Series is an effort to appropriately evaluate and service youngsters who live in the Roslyn community.
State and federal law mandate that children be educated in the least restrictive environment, and accordingly preschool programs are educating many youngsters with a variety of needs. The workshops are offered to the preschool programs that service youngsters residing within the Roslyn School District to ensure that the students receive appropriate and timely referrals to the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE). In addition, the workshops, conducted by Roslyn staff, provide the local preschool staff with instructional strategies and supports to enhance the educational experience all students are receiving in our community early childhood programs.
