The Special Education Local Advisory Committee conducts quarterly meetings held at Cucci’s Restaurant at 5:00 p.m. Information and education are provided to parents involving their needs, as well as the needs of the student. Your input as a parent is very valuable in sharing topics that are important to understand and promote effective decisions. Often there are questions about the navigation of special education process to obtain the path that you and your child need to follow to ensure that these needs are met. This knowledge will assist you in the development of your child’s IEP, as well as introducing resources with available state and community agencies that will enhance your child’s success.
Our next meeting is Tuesday, February12, 2019. (if there is inclement weather, the meeting will be rescheduled with the new date published in the Virginian Review and the Alleghany County Public Schools website). If you are unable to attend, the following meeting is Thursday, April 25, 2019.
Please attend and voice your suggestions and/or concerns. These meetings are the forum for you to ensure that your child receives a free and appropriate education to provide for their success during their school years and for their choices after graduation. See you there!
