    The Parent Teacher Association of a school is a non-partisan, volunteer organization that joins parents and teachers in a common enterprise to enhance the education and enrich the lives of the children.

PTA Meetings are open to everyone. Programs cover a variety of topics and may include outside speakers as well as school or district personnel.

    Special Education Department
    The over-riding principle by which Special Education operates is to offer services in the least restrictive environment. This means, services are provided to the maximum extent appropriate, providing an education in the same manner as it is provided to every other child, alongside peers in a general educational environment, in their home district, in their home classrooms. Only if a multi-disciplinary team concludes that a childís needs are not being addressed in the general classroom will that child be placed in a special education setting for some part or all of the day.

      Individual Educational Plan (IEP) An IEP addresses the unique needs of the individual learner. IEPs are drawn up for all children who have difficulties affecting their ability to learn. The IEP for every student is reviewed annually. Depending on circumstances, an IEP may be reviewed several times a year. Many Districts conduct a comprehensive re-evaluation every three years.
