Additional support services offered by GESD
In addition to special education, the Office of Student Support Services also oversees homebound instruction, home instruction and is the district's homeless liaison.
The district has compiled useful information regarding home instruction provided by the New York State Department of Education provided below (PDF documents).
For more specific information, or to begin the process of homeschooling for your child, contact Colleen Ulrich at 775-5796.
Homebound instruction will be provided when deemed necessary to enable a student to keep up with class work during a period of illness or other circumstances that prevent the students' regular attendance. For more information, contact 775-5791. Click on the links below (PDF).
