The Special Education Department has moved!

The office is now located at 21 Everett Drive, Yaphank; aside from the address, all contact information (phone, fax, and email) remains the same.

The policies and procedures of Longwood Central Schools are aimed at ensuring the right to a “free and appropriate public education, in the least restrictive environment” for all children found to have a disability.

A range of services, from part-time to full-time special education, is available to allow success in meeting the requirements of the New York State Standards. This is accomplished through specially designed instruction based upon the individual needs of students identified as disabled by the district's Committee on Special Education. Consideration of academic, social, management and physical needs form the basis for the type and duration of services. Special education programs and services are designed to assure that children with disabilities receive an appropriate and equal opportunity for education growth up to age 21. Services are offered to aging-out students.
