The Southern Penobscot Regional Program for Children with Exceptionalities is committed to the concept of providing a free appropriate public education to all children in the least restrictive environment. The Regional programs serve as components of each participating district’s continuum of services required by state and federal law. The programs are designed to meet the needs of students whose districts are unable to provide local educational programs which offer the student appropriate educational benefit. Each program varies with the nature of the population served, assuring that each student participates in school and community mainstream opportunities to the maximum extent appropriate to the needs of the student.

Additionally, the Regional Program provides assistance to participating districts through surveys, facilitated inter-agency collaboration, consultation, staff development and other services as requested.
