Our Promise to You

Recognizing special education is a journey with no true finish lines, just continuous opportunities to grow in a limitless future, the McGuffey School District and Special Services Department has embraced the concept of responsibility, independence and contribution in its delivery of specialized instruction for students with disabilities.

The commitment to children and passion in making a difference, collaboratively, is evident in all aspects of our educational programs. In fact, it is due to the integration of services, outreach to family and community and a strong belief that all students can learn, that our students have acquired the academic, vocational and social/emotional skills needed to transition to adulthood with conviction, self-confidence and competence.

The McGuffey Special Services Department is also committed to meeting the needs of gifted students by ensuring that they are served through an organized program designed to develop their potential through appropriate educational experiences. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, “Mentally gifted is defined as outstanding intellectual and creative ability, the development of which requires specially designed programs or support services, or both, not ordinarily provided in the regular education program.” Each student is viewed as an individual with specific strengths and interests. Through the regular education and support staff, educational opportunities for an identified child include varied enrichment and acceleration options.
