The Issaquah Special Education PTSA is a district-wide volunteer-led non-profit organization serving teachers, staff, families and students who are part of special education. We formed to build community and share resources among families receiving services including; Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), 504 Plans, Early Childhood Education Program (ECE), Learning Assistance Program (LAP) and the Academy for Community Transitions Program (ACT). We are also here to serve and support students and parents struggling in the general education setting that do not qualify for special education services and those just beginning their special education journey. You are not alone and neither is your student, welcome.
We host two community events a month, manage a community Facebook Group, and reach out to other school PTSAs in the district.
We focus on parent education topics through social media, video presentations with experts, and fact sheets on special education issues.
We attend school board meetings, serve on district committees, and are involved in the state PTSA's statewide special education committee.
Joining the Issaquah Special Education PTSA supports our organization, builds community and empowers families and teachers to advocate for special education students.
