Do you have time to volunteer? The Moravia special education department is seeking volunteers to serve as additional parent members on the Committee on Special Education. Additional parent members are sometimes requested by a parent of a child with a disability to be present at a meeting. This occurs because the additional parent member has experience raising and educating a child with a disability or simply to lend moral support.
In order to be an additional parent member the regulations indicate you must be the parent of a student with a disability residing in the school district or a neighboring school district. You may also be the parent of a student who has been declassified within a period not to exceed five years or the parent of a student who has graduated within a period not to exceed five years. Additional parent members can be requested to attend a CSE meeting if specifically requested in writing by the parent of the student, the student or by a member of the committee at least 72 hours prior to the meeting.
If you have questions, please contact Chris Fisher, Director of Special Education at 497-2670 x1012.
