Department of Special Education

  • Framingham Public Schools provides a broad array of services for children and youth identified with disabilities from the ages of three through twenty-two.   State and federal special education laws and regulations, namely The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), govern the referral, evaluation, and placement procedures.  Framingham Public Schools is committed to the goal of providing an appropriate education for students with needs in the least restrictive environment. 


    Tiered Focused Monitoring 

    During the 2021-2022 school year, Framingham Public Schools participated in a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review (TFM) conducted by the Department’s Office of Public School Monitoring (PSM). The purpose of the Tiered Focused Monitoring Review is to monitor compliance with regulatory requirements, focusing on special education and civil rights.


    We are pleased to share that the Department found our district to be in compliance with all of the criteria monitored during the TFM Review and no corrective action is required at this time.
