  • Special Services

    The Office of Special Services oversees the district's Special Education programs, Nursing, and Home Instruction. We also act as Homeless Liaison, DCPP Liaison (Division of Child Protection and Permanency, formerly DYFS), and WIB Liaison (Workforce Investment Board).

    As a Vernon Township resident, I have familiarity with the excellence of the West Milford School District and the programs that support all students, inclusive of our special needs children. My most recent administrative position was that of the Superintendent of Schools in Vernon where I also served as the Director of Special Services. I am honored to work beside many dedicated teachers, administrators and faculty to support the needs of our students and their families. It is through collaboration, dedication, passion, and diligence that we will move forward collectively as a West Milford community in support of our children. Should you need any assistance, please feel free to contact me. I wish everyone a wonderful Spring of 2023 as we complete another successful school year in West Milford.
