NEW: Special Needs Parent Representative on Governing Board

SNAC and the Central Parents Committee 
suggested that this new optional role be introduced, explained and decided upon at the School AGAs in September 2015.

This position could be created if the parents who attend your school's Annual General Meeting approve the decision.

If approved, the role of this GB parent representative would be:

  • To make decisions in the best interests of all students at the school
  • Serve as a contact person for parents of students with special needs at the school
  • Act as an Email Liaison to bring feedback, suggestions and ideas from your school to SNAC, and bring SNAC information to your school

Please note that while all parents of students with IEPs are most welcome to attend SNAC meetings to ask questions and provide feedback, representatives who accept this position are NOT required to attend SNAC meetings.

A FAQ about this potential new position was provided
by the Central Parents' Committee to GB Chairs and Regional Parent Representatives in preparation for their school AGAs [page 11]. 

If you have been elected to this position at your school, congratulations! Please Contact Us.





It is with utmost pleasure that I welcome you to the Special Needs Advisory Committee (SNAC) site of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.  The SNAC Committee is represented by a body of individuals encompassing parents of children with special needs, school commissioners, principals, a representative of non-teaching professional staff, a teacher representative and a representative from a community agency that supports children with special needs. The role of the Committee is to advise the school board on policies for the organization of educational services that would ultimately affect students with special needs.

A wide array of students with special needs are represented, from ADHD to learning disabilities, sensory and physical challenges, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), intellectual disabilities, and speech and language disorders.

Elections are held yearly in September at an Annual Public Meeting at the school board head office. Meetings are held monthly and all are welcome to attend. However, specific individual issues are not addressed at SNAC. Only issues that affect the special needs population as a whole are addressed.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail should you have any comments, questions or suggestions.

We wish you all the best in your child’s academic endeavours with Lester B. Pearson!

Warm regards,

Brett Hillgartner - Chair  2015-2016
Special Needs Advisory Committee
