Community Focus Group


Community Focus Group

The Special Education Community Focus Group consists of parent representatives and special education staff.  An attempt is made to balance the group so that there is broad representation with individuals from each high school feeder area (North, South, West), disability areas, and grade levels (below-age-five, elementary school, middle school, high school, & young adult transition program).  

The vision for the group is that by working collaboratively together we can inform the education of our students with disabilities so that they can maximize their potential.  

The Special Education Community Focus Group holds four committee meetings and engages in two parent meetings/trainings each school year.  The meetings focus on items which have district-wide implications. The focus group does not discuss issues related to an individual student.  Those issues should be resolved through the IEP Team process and building administration.
