Special Education & Student Services

Extended School Year Program

Our Extended School Year (ESY) program for students with disabilities will run between Monday, July 10, 2023 and Friday, August 18, 2023. More information will be available in June. The times will be determined soon and are dependent on the school bus schedule.

Department Overview

The Hudson City School District is responsible for providing special education services to all resident students who qualify for such supports. These services are coordinated by the district’s Student Services Department, which encompasses the district’s Committees on Special Education at the preschool, elementary and secondary levels. The Student Services Department also oversees the district’s health, related services, counseling and social work services for all resident students.
