The Special Education Office is located in the Guidance Suite. You can reach Mrs. Early, the Special Education Coordinator, Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM-3:00 PM. Her phone number is 607-363-2104.
If you have questions regarding the Committee on Pre-school Special Education (CPSE), the Committee on Special Education (CSE) and/or Section 504 please contact Mrs. Early.
The Special Education Teaching Staff includes Mr. Mark Astor, Mrs. Desiree Trimbell, Mr. Burt Reed, Mrs. Michelle Pattison, Mrs. Linda Walley and Mrs. Amanda Lewis. Mrs. Corin Bonsick and Mrs. Holly Menke provide Counseling services. Mrs. Bonsick is also our School Psychologist. We contract with DCMO BOCES for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Educational Programs that we cannot provide here at the home school.
If you go to the DCS Home Page and click on the Staff Link, you can navigate to the teacher pages and learn about them and what they have to offer to your children. We at DCS are very lucky that our classes are small enough to offer more personalized support. We pride ourselves on our graduation rate and strive to give our students the best education we can provide.
