Special Education

Pinckney Community Schools has established a family atmosphere that celebrates life long learning. Whether it’s an effective classroom, a clean environment, a satisfying meal, a safe bus ride to school, office assistance to a student, a parent, a staff member, a wholesome extracurricular experience, effective leadership, etc., everyone in the school organization makes a difference in a student’s learning and contributes to the excellent and outstanding school environment. The Pinckney Community Schools Special Education Department currently services over 450 students. We maintain special education programs in our elementary buildings (Country, Farley Hill and Lakeland Elementary), our 4-6 Navigator building, 7/8 Pathfinder building and the Pinckney Community High School. We have a continuum of services with an emphasis on the Least Restrictive Environment, working tirelessly in collaboration with parents to meet the needs of all students. We provide services beginning at age three for those students who are eligible.

Pinckney presently employs over 30 special education teachers and special needs paraprofessionals. There are over 20 LESA staff servicing Pinckney Community Schools which include psychologists, social workers, speech and language teachers, occupational therapists, physical therapists and program consultants.
