We attend school board meetings, serve on district committees, and are involved in the Washington State PTA's newly formed Special Education Committee.
We attend school board meetings and provide feedback to members so we can all stay informed on important issues related to special education.
We attend monthly meetings of the State Special Education Committee, participate in National and State PTA trainings and attend the state PTA Convention.
We submit letters on behalf of families in crisis to the School Board, Special Services Department, and Superintendent (per board discretion).
We have both board members and general members taking part in ISD working groups, listening sessions and committees to insure special education interests are represented.
Our presidents and vice presidents have worked to build working relationships with district administrators, the Issaquah PTSA Council and individual school PTAs.
