Special Services Office
A Letter from the Executive Director of Special Services
As the Executive Director of Special Services, I would personally like to welcome you to the Special Services' Office. I am excited to work with district personnel and the community in my role as Executive Director.
The Office of Special Services coordinates special education and works in conjunction with nursing and social work services for the Andover Public Schools. The Special Education Department is dedicated to provide specialized services and instruction to more than 1,100 students between the ages of 3 and 22 who have been identified as educationally disabled. The Nursing Department assists all students with health care needs so they can participate in all aspects of school. The Social Work Department employs 19 Social Workers throughout all of the district schools who are available to meet the social and emotional needs of our student body.
The goal of the Special Services Office is to provide each student with the necessary strategies, skills, and support to function as independent and contributing members of the school and Andover community. To assist us in our goal we welcome your help and collaboration.
For additional information about the specific services of the Special Services office, I invite you to visit the web pages for special education, nursing and social work. Of course, you may also call the Special Services Office at any time for information and assistance.
