Special Education Family Engagement


    The Offices of Specialized Services and Family Engagement and Community Partnerships work together to offer families of students receiving specialized services opportunities to: 

    • gain information to make informed decisions 
    • connect to other families, their schools and the district
    • learn about available resources
    • feel supported



    Special Education Family Engagement Events

    Special Education Family Engagement events are planned throughout the school year for families of students with disabilities to connect with other families and resources, and learn additional ways to support their students for increased success.


    Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) Meetings

    SEAC meetings are held monthly and are an opportunity for families of students in Special Education to engage with other parents, staff and interested community members. SEAC members provide input on special education issues to the Director of Special Education.  Attending meetings is a way to become more knowledgeable about Special Education, develop relationships with Special Education staff, network with other families and make positive change for all students. Parents are encouraged to attend any time as a guest or to become a SEAC member.
