Special Education Programs and Services Focused Review

The New York State Education Department’s Office of Special Education has initiated a Special Education Programs and Services Focused Review at John Dewey High School during the 2017/2018 school year. The purpose of this review is to assess the district’s compliance with selected Federal and State laws and regulations governing the education of students with disabilities.

The review will be conducted by the Special Education Quality Assurance (SEQA) State Regional office. The review process will involve a review of school records of a representative sample of students with disabilities, classroom visitations and surveys. In addition, meetings of the committee on special education will be observed. Further information may be obtained by contacting the SEQA Maria Dzubak Regional Office at NYCSEQA@NYSED.GOV and/ or by contacting at Justine Bretagna at John Dewey High School.

Holiday Giving at J.D.H.S.

J.D.H.S. was proud to be a part of giving back during the holiday season. Our students, staff and parents collected new toys for a local shelter. Students and staff wrapped gifts to be given to children of all ages. Our staff went and distributed these gifts at the shelter. They brought Santa and clowns and treats for all the children. Our students and staff also participated in the Make a Wish Foundations annual holiday letter writing campaign. We submitted 475 letters that means a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation for $475.00!!!!!
