Chicopee Special Education

Welcome to

Chicopee Public Schools

Special Education 

Dear Families,

Once again, a summer flew by and we are ready and excited to open our school doors to your children.  I hope you all had a wonderful summer and enjoyed the beautiful and sunny days!

As my role of Director of Special Education for Chicopee Public Schools, I have the pleasure of getting to know many of you and your children.  I look forward to meeting more of you through the upcoming school year. 

On the website, or, you will find the Parent’s Notice of Procedural Safeguards.  In accordance with Federal Special Education Law, IDEA 2004, school districts may distribute these Safeguards once per year to parents/guardians of students in Special Education.  Please review these Safeguards for your reference throughout the school year. 

Also on this website is information regarding the Chicopee Parent Advisory Council (PAC).  Please take a few minutes to review the information.  The PAC has been an important resource to many families in Chicopee and also to my department in the role of school and family liaison. The child find form can be found HERE.

I look forward to this new school year and to working collaboratively with parents and staff as we strive to achieve a common goal of ensuring a positive school experience for all our students.  Best wishes for a smooth beginning!
