The Pupil Personnel Services Department administers Special Education, English as a New Language (ENL), Homeless Education, Title I programs and other federal and state grant programs across the school district.
The Cairo-Durham Central School District is committed to providing high quality, research-based instruction to all students. For some students, a more intensive level of support may be appropriate. When a student qualifies for special education services, an individualized educational program is developed to provide supports aimed at helping the student succeed in the least restrictive environment possible.
