Special Programs

Pascack Valley Regional High School District has five Special Programs to meet the multiple needs of students with emotional disabilities, other health impairments, specific learning disabilities, multiple disabilities, and communication impairments. Two of the programs, Park @ PVR and R.I.S.E., are for students with behavioral needs and provide therapeutic and behavioral services as well as adapted curriculum. A third program, LLD, is provided to students with learning and language disabilities and offers modified curriculum, functional life skills development through a Life Skills class component, community based learning opportunities, and functional and vocational skill development through the district’s Career Exploration and Internship Programs.

Pascack Valley Regional High School District addresses the needs of classified students attending a NonPublic School in Montvale, NJ through a contract with Bergen County Special Services (BCSS). The District Supervisor of Special Services meets annually with Non-Public School personnel and BCSS to ensure appropriate and seamless provision of services.

The District also sponsors a separate public school program, Park Academy (coordinated by the Region II Office of Special Education), for students grades 4 through 8 with behavioral disabilities.

 Pascack Valley Regional High School District accepts tuition students into the District's five special programs, from school districts that do not have in-district placement options; this affords classified students, throughout Bergen County, a public school experience with opportunities for inclusion to the maximum extent possible.

Pascack Valley Regional High School District services has approximately 352 classified students within the District. There are an additional 37 students placed out-of-district in county and private facilities. The District has accepted 32 tuition students and services a total of 60 students in the District's special programs.
