• Welcome to the Blind Brook Department of Pupil Services!  

    Our mission is to support students with disabilities and their families to access special education, support services, and accommodations as per New York State and federal regulations. We also serve as a resource to teachers, administration, and the community to support any student or individual with any type of special need.

    During the 2023-2024 school year, we will continue the structure of the previous two years to provide more specialized support with Mr. Burg being the primary contact for the Middle School and High School with an office at the King Street Campus, and Ms. Carpanzano being the primary contact for the Elementary School with an office at the Ridge Street Campus. This year, we are excited about increased student opportunities in special class programming and the expansion of our Integrated Co-Teaching program to fifth grade at the BMP Ridge Street School, a change in the Middle School schedule so Resource Room will not conflict with the WIN (formerly Flex) period or specials, and additional special education support in Earth Science at Blind Brook High School. Districtwide, we look forward to year two implementation of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) training for our clinicians and staff to support student mental health. Additionally, we have fully implemented the Frontline Collaboration Portal, an online, secure, paperless communication system for all department notices to provide enhanced parent communication.

    Please feel free to reach out to us anytime if you have any questions or to share any good news on a Blind Brook student’s latest accomplishment!
