Parents, Community Invited to Special-Ed Input Forums

The meetings will focus on developing a Special Education Action Plan

In response to the results of an FCMAT special-education study conducted last spring, the Santa Barbara School District is developing a Special Education Action Plan.

Parents of children with special needs and other interested residents are invited to a community forum to share ideas about restructuring efforts in special education. District staff will be available to respond to specific questions parents may have about their child.

Three community meetings will be offered from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The content will be identical at each meeting.

» Oct. 28 at La Cumbre Junior High

» Nov. 2 at Goleta Valley Junior High

» Nov. 4 at Santa Barbara Junior High

Spanish translation will be available. The Nov. 4 meeting at Santa Barbara Junior High will be held in Spanish with English translation.

For more information, call 805.963.4331 x252.

— Barbara Keyani is coordinator of administrative services and communications for the Santa Barbara School District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
