The New Shoreham School District
Local Special Education Advisory Committee
The New Shoreham School District Local Special Education Advisory Committee (LAC) is an active voice in advocating that all students receive educational services enabling each student to achieve optimum success throughout their school years and into the world of adulthood.
The committee meets at least four times during the school year to provide feedback to the director, share information, and serve as a resource to other parents.
The LAC helps to ensure that the educational needs of children with disabilities are met.
The LAC provides input into the Special Education services provided at the Block Island School.
The LAC is an advocacy group of parents and teachers to help parents understand the Special Education process.
The LAC is also an advisory group to the State of RI Department of Special Education.
The LAC provides input into the IDEA part B funding and Preschool grant.
All parents are welcome.
