Special education requires an individual plan of education for each student. Hailey Elementary School has three special education teachers, a speech language pathologist (Maura Pfeiffer), and an occupational therapist (Susan Cooper).
Sara Gilman is the case manager for students in kindergarten and first grade. Natalie Marenda is the case manager for students in second and third grade. Sarah Polk is the case manager for students in fourth and fifth grade. If you have questions about your child's individualize education plan (IEP) please contact the appropriate case manager.
