Calling all families, staff, and educators of SpEd and ELL students at John Hay! The first Seattle Special Education PTSA meeting is next week, Tuesday, September 27th, at 7:00 PM at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence (JSCEE) in the auditorium. We are excited about the upcoming school year and welcome everyone to join us! Wyeth Jesse, SPS Chief of Student Services, will be there to discuss his new role, his organization and the district’s commitment to SpEd/ELL students.
The goal of the Seattle Special Education PTSA is to partner with the district and school staff to provide rich and equitable educational opportunities for students with disabilities. It is made up of Seattle area parents, educators, friends, and students with disabilities. We strive to be a racially, culturally, and socio-economically inclusive group that is representative of the students we serve.
Students with disabilities are general education students who also receive special education services. Educating students with disabilities is the responsibility of all school staff, not just special educators. Everyone working in our public schools has the duty to welcome students with disabilities as full members of their school communities and as capable students on the path to becoming successful adult citizens.
For more information, including a membership form and dues information, please visit our website.
