A Letter from our Pupil Personnel Services Director

Dear Taconic Hills Families 

Welcome to the Department of Pupil Personnel Services within the Taconic Hills Central School District. Our department provides services to students with IEPs and Section 504s. 

The Taconic Hills Central School District is fortunate to have exceptional and dedicated special education teachers, speech and language therapists, school psychologists, school social workers, teaching assistants, and teacher’s aides. 

Pupil Personnel Department staff are in an ideal position to support the well-being and safety of all students. They are trained to evaluate factors contributing to student behavior, social/emotional and academic achievement challenges. They work collaboratively with other departments.

If you would like more information about the various procedures and kinds of meetings you will attend as part of the Pupil Personnel Services Department, you are welcome to give me a call at (518) 325-2852 or email me at hpollinger@taconichills.k12.ny.us

Our office is located in the Elementary Building, and you are always welcome to call or email. 

For pertinent information, you may also visit our Department of Pupil Personnel Services website. 

In closing, I wish you and your child success academically, emotionally, and socially in the 2023-2024 school year. Remember, your child is very important to us. We firmly believe every child can learn and reach their full potential if we intervene and support them throughout their educational journey. 


Mr. Henry Pollinger, EdS
