Special Needs Advisory Committee Meeting
will be on:
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
1925 Brookdale Ave. Dorval
We encourage all parents of students with special needs to attend the SNAC Annual General Meeting. Any parent who is interested in joining SNAC can nominate themselves, and new positions will be filled by majority vote. We encourage you to join us, and exercise your right to vote
Our regular monthly meetings are open to the public.
We welcome you with friendly smiles and refreshments!
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!
Brett Hillgartner - Chair 2014-2015
