Getting Involved

Special Education Parent Advisory Council 

The purpose of the Special Education Parent Advisory Council is to:

  • Support and encourage involvement of families of learners with disabilities in their school and educational programs.

  • Development of cooperative relationships between regular and special education.
  • Provide professional development opportunities and support for parents, families, and students with disabilities.
  • Serve as a forum for the expression of concerns and recommendations pertaining to the education of students with disabilities in the Appleton Area School District.

The Advisory will do this by:

  • Promoting collaboration and increased means of communication as a means to improve the education process for all learners.
  • Influencing change, policy and procedures by informing and educating parents, school staff, administrators, students, and community members through: workshops, websites and printed materials.

The Council meets quarterly throughout the school year. We are always accepting new members. Please reach out to Amy Steiner for more information, inlcuding a meeting schedule.
