    About Special Services

    The Kearny Special Services Department offers comprehensive programs of specialized services and related services to meet the needs of students with varying disabilities. All schools within the district provide inclusion with supports, resource room instruction and resource replacement classes. The special education system can be very daunting to parents/guardians and general educators.  It is important that parents/guardians have an understanding of the system in order to effectively be a part of their child’s team.
