The current version of the guide Newton Program Guide 2013
The program guide describes all special education programs and services in Newton Public Schools. The philosophy underlying special education services in Newton is neighborhood inclusion, meeting each child’s needs in the classroom with their peers. When this model does not meet a student’s educational and emotional needs, Newton has a number of programs available as described in the program guide with additions below.
Stabilization Programs – K-12 – technically not a special education program, but a resource for all children who are in crisis or urgent need of different types of supports and evaluation.
Email and Phone Numbers for Special Education Central Administration are included on the Problem Resolution Flow Chart.
Problem Resolution Flowchart– If you have a problem or question that you have not been able to resolve or get answered by your school contact person (IEP contact person), please contact the next person shown on the chart. NewtonPAC has been assured by Judy Levin-Charns that she wants parents to have their question answered and concerns addressed.
Questions about ABA services and BCBAs should be addressed to Dan Almeida at Dan_Almeida@newton.k12.ma.us or 617-559-6025
