Two Very Important Announcements For Delaware Parents @KilroysDelaware @ed_in_de @dwablog @nannyfat @delawareonline @doverpost @thestatenews #edchat #netde #eduDE

Delaware Parents who have children that attend the six priority schools: You basically have one week to do something before decisions are reached.  The districts either have to sign the MOU (Memorandum Of Understanding) or reject it.  Either way, the implications will be huge.  If you want to plan something or organize, I have started a Facebook group called Delaware Parents Against Priority Schools.  Here’s a link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1474847392802505/

Tomorrow, September 23rd, at 4:30pm, is the next IEP Task Force meeting.  This will again be in both locations, the Collette Educational Resource Center in Dover and the Carvel Building in Wilmington.  Matt Denn wants parents to come and tell their story.  If you have children with special needs, please come and tell your story.  If you have children who attend the priority schools who receive special education services, you should definitely come as this could be your last chance to speak to the IEP Task Force before major changes occur to your child’s services.
