March 11th

Every year the Maryland State Department of Education sends a survey to parents and guardians off all students receiving special education and other related services.  Come learn the resuls from last year's survey and the impact of those results from HCPSS Department of Special Education staff.  

Fliers will be handed out with information on how to fill out the survey for parents that have not received it in the mail or prefer to fill it out online.

We will also vote on updated SECAC By-Laws and discuss other SECAC business.
