Special Services

The Katonah-Lewisboro Unified Free School District is responsible for providing special education services to all resident students who qualify for such supports. These services are coordinated by the district's Special Services Office, which encompasses the district's Committee for Special Education at the preschool, elementary and secondary levels, in conjunction with the regular education program.   We invite the parents of all classified students to partner with us to meet the needs of your children.
