Director message 2020-2021
Dear parents and guardians,
As your Director of Student Services, my goal is to make sure your children receive their IEP services in a safe and supportive environment. Given the pandemic, service delivery will look different than in a traditional school year. However, I assure you that the student services staff will work, in collaboration with you, to provide an appropriate education.
I was hired August 1st after Director Carol Riccardi-Gahan retired. I am fortunate to be joining a very dedicated team of teachers, administrators, related service providers and professional staff committed to improving outcomes for all students. I invite all of you to join this dedicated team as we work through a challenging year. Thank you for your continued support of the Maynard Public Schools.
Team chairs coordinate the special education process at each school ensuring quality programming and compliance with Federal and State Special Education Laws and Regulations.
