Questions and Concerns

The Special Services Department seeks to address questions and concerns in a timely fashion. Most often questions and concerns can be addressed by the teachers, service providers or administrators within the school building.  

In all schools, the special education Liaison is most likely to work with your child and understand how your child is performing and progressing in school. Please contact the Liaison first with any questions or concerns that you may have. Liaisons can be reached by calling the main number of the school.

If you have have questions about report cards and/or progress reports, the school schedule/routine, disciplinary policy/procedures, or other issues or events that the Liaison does not manage, then please contact a building administrator.  Building administrators can be reached by calling the main number of the school.

If you have questions about special education regulations or procedures, evaluation of students, referral of students, or other similar issues, then please contact the appropriate Educational Team Leader (ETL).  ETLs can be reached by calling the main number of the school.
