    Parent Advisory Group (PAG)
     
    Dear Parent/Guardian(s):
     
     
    The 2023-2024 school year is under way. We invite you to remain active in the educational experience of your son or daughter in school.  Please review the website for general information regarding the district's Child Study Teams, educational resources and additional community resources.
     
    The Parents of Special Education Students (POSES) Parent Advisory Group (PAG) was created to:
    • provide parents, guardians and caregivers the opportunity to share input regarding special education programs and services in the school
    • increase community involvement and elicit input on relevant topics for future presentations and information sharing, and
    • facilitate communication for positive interactions with district and school staff.
