The Union Free School District (UFSD)
The Union Free School District (UFSD) is a Special Act Public School that was established by an act of the NYS Legislature for students with special educational needs, offering 10-month and 12-month programs. Students are referred to the UFSD by schools in NYS through their Committees on Special Education (CSE).
The UFSD provides both Residential and Day placements for youngsters in grades three through twelve. Classes are designed to focus on the particular educational and emotional challenges of each child, with no more than eight children to a class. The teaching faculty and support staff are specially trained in the education and the behavior of learning disabled and emotionally handicapped youngsters.
Little Flower UFSD works in tandem with Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York to help students move on to other community-based schools with an appreciation of their full capacity to learn and a desire to grow towards excellence.
