Special Education


Our role as Special Educators in the Andover School District is to provide a Free Appropriate Public Education to students with disabilities between the ages of three and twenty-one as required by the legal mandates of the New Hampshire Department of Education.

We will accomplish this through the following measures:

  • Assessing students in all areas related to the suspected disability

  • Accessibility to the regular curriculum

  • Consideration of how the disability impacts the student’s learning

  • Developing goals and objectives that most appropriately meet the needs of the student

  • Choosing a placement in the least restrictive environment
