A Message from the Director of Special Programs

  • Welcome Spring!

    If you have a student that receives school-aged or pre-school special education services, you can plan on receiving an invitation to attend their annual review meeting sometime between November and June.  Medina Central School District requests your participation in all Committee on Special Education meetings, as you are one of our most valuable partners in your child's education.  


    The department's focus remains particularly on the foundational principals of Special Education including Specially Designed Instruction, evidence-based instruction and accommodations, and high quality inclusive programming. The NYS "Blueprint for Improved Results for Students with Disabilities" also serves as anchor for our everyday practices. 


    I look forward to working with all stakeholders to create the best experience possible for the students of Medina, and strive to garner the greatest outcomes from every individual student.  Please feel free to reach out to my Office, or me personally, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's educational needs.  And please check back periodically for updates!


    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Office of Special Programs Webpage!


    Most Sincerely,


    Alexandra DiLaura
