Ms. Margaret M. Schlegel
Director of Special Education
Welcome Families to Ten Broeck Academy/Franklinville Central School District. This is an amazingly supportive small rural school district that I am sure you will come to love as much as I have. As the Director of Special Education at TBAFCS, I wanted to share a little about my background. I have worked in the education field for over thirty years always in a special education affiliated role, I started as a special education teacher with over 20 years of teaching. While I loved teaching I chose to change and enter the administrative side of education. I have been in an administrative role for over 15 years working in rural areas across New York State. I enjoy the comforting small school feel and the creative ways we are able to support all students. I have also had the opportunity to be on all sides of the Committee on Special Education table. I have had the roles of teacher, parent, advocate, and administrator at meetings and feel that background helps me greatly in my role as Director of Special Education.
At Ten Broeck Academy/Franklinville Central school we have a wonderful group of extremely talented and supportive Teachers, Therapists, and Support Staff that are the backbone and crucial to the success of our students. Their efforts in combination with your role as the family are what makes a difference for students. We hope you will join us as the team supporting your child's growth and success at school.
Please feel free to contact the Special Education Office with any questions or concerns you might have.
The Special Education Office is located in the Elementary School building and is generally staffed from 7:30-4 Monday through Friday.
