Therapeutic Support Program (TSP)
This program is designed to meet the needs of students who are pursuing their NYS Regents Diploma as determined by their CSE. Students participate in a general education curriculum. This program is offered at the middle school and high school level in district-based settings, for students who require small group instruction in a therapeutic setting. Students in this program primarily present with mental health challenges that significantly interfere with the students' ability to be educated and supported within a typical general education classroom environment. Students needs are met through highly structured classroom settings with counseling and instructional support. Students have access to mainstream classes as appropriate.
