We meet throughout the school year to share information and concerns of educational issues.

The committee’s goals are: -To enable parents of special education children to be effective in their advocacy efforts -To jointly advocate for all children with special needs -To aid the East Providence School Department in its efforts to provide quality education for all students -To provide each other with a strong network of support.

Each year we celebrate and recognize those who go above and beyond to help our students achieve in school, especially in the area of inclusion.
