The Delaware PTA President-Elect announced he is stepping down from that position today at the Delaware PTA State Convention held at Del-Tech in Dover. Bill Doolittle has been with the Delaware PTA since 2011, and has probably served on more committees and task forces in our state than most.
Bill is a good guy, and he is a strong advocate for students with disabilities. I know him from the IEP Task Force. I wasn’t a member, but I attended every meeting so I got to know him pretty well. I also saw him in action as a member of the Accountability Framework Working Group the past couple months. Doolittle was not happy with the opt-out penalty, even if the DOE’s minutes from last Winter may have suggested otherwise.
Doolittle will remain with the Delaware PTA as part of their advocacy committee run by Yvonne Johnson. And he still holds a seat on the Governor’s Advisory Committee for Exceptional Citizens. I have no doubt Bill will continue to be an active voice for our special needs kids here in Delaware!
Dr. Terri Hodges remains the President of Delaware PTA, and Ashley Dalzell-Gray was voted in as the first Vice-President of Delaware PTA at the convention today.
