     Our Mission:

    The Cheektowaga Central School District is dedicated to providing a creative, flexible and appropriate model for the delivery of services to all students. This model offers a continuum of services and implements the NYS regulations based on the unique learning needs of each student.
     
    We believe:
    • Parents and educators should share responsibility for a student’s educational program.
    • All students can learn and succeed at different rates in a supportive environment.
    • The full continuum of services will be available based on the unique needs of each student.
    • Students are socially and academically responsible and accountable for their own actions.
    • Student-teacher ratio, as well as support services and positive role models should be considered when determining a student’s  ducational program.
    • Appropriate modifications should be made to accommodate a student’s unique learning needs in the least restrictive environment.
