Important Meetings About Special Ed
The district will be holding two meetings next week on special education issues:

4/16 – Understanding Inclusion in the Elementary Schools

The invitation flyer and a FAQ on inclusion are attached.

4/19 – Special Education and Changes to the Secondary Schools

The changes referenced in the attached invitation are outlined in this section of the district website:   http://tiny.cc/l5dicw

Some parents and guardians have asked how the implementation of IB-MYP in the middle schools and changes to academic placement in the middle schools and high school may impact students with special needs. The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss this with administrators and school leaders.

Download flyers here. Hope to see many of you there!

GET OUT THE VOTE!!!

Fewer than 10% of our townspeople vote in the Board of Ed elections! Which is shocking and alarming considering how much of our two towns’ budgets are allocated to the schools. There are 6 candidates vying for 3 positions, so your votes really matter!!

Please educate yourselves on the candidates’ positions and VOTE on Tuesday, April 17. Polls are open from 2pm-9pm.

The candidates’ websites:

Amy Higer: http://www.amyhiger.org/
Madhu Pai, Wayne Eastman, Jeffrey Bennett: http://www.votesoma2012.com/
Karen (Tia) Swanson & Jennifer Payne-Parrish: http://www.payne-parrishandswanson.org/
