“Our job is to join our children in discovering who they are.”
~ Susan Marston
The Special Education PTO provides parents with tools and information to work collaboratively with the school district, and to be more effective advocates for their children. We host monthly meetings to help families network with other families and share information about special education concerns, successes, resources, and to navigate special education. We support on-going professional development of district staff and teachers, and encourage comprehensive, thoughtful inclusion of differently-abled children in our communities.
The Special Education PTO has enjoyed a collaborative relationship with our community, Board of Education and district administration for 15 years. Our work enables us to share a voice founded on our relationships with SOMSD families of differently-abled children. In partnership with the Parenting Center we host a monthly meeting where all members of the community are welcome. Please visit the Events page for upcoming meeting dates.
