*Please note that all meetings begin at 6:00 PM Speaker sign-up begins at 5:30PM, and closes at 6:30PM

If you are the parent of a special education student, please make this meeting!!!

Come join us and tell the chancellor that our special needs children are NOT having their needs met!!!

Tired of your child’s IEP being developed to meet the needs of the school and not your child?

Tired of your child not receiving their related services, not being told, and then having to fight for their makeup services?

We want Principals to receive FULL funding to run grade pure classes no matter how low the enrollment!

Stand beside us as we insist that our district receive:

More ASD Programs (8:1:1 and NEST) across all grades!
More self-contained summer programs for Community School District students, especially students with intellectual disabilities!
More training for our teachers and related service providers in:

  • Orton Gillingham

  • PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Strategies)

  • ABA

  • Sensory Integration

  • ASD

  • Linda Mood Bell

If you are too shy to speak, that’s OK! Just come and show your support for your fellow parents with thunderous applause.

Sign up to speak starts at 5:30. All statements are limited to 2 minutes.
