Purpose

  • On July 15th, 2019, the Shoreline School Board approved the Special Education Program Review committee recommendation to have a diverse group of stakeholders define a clearly articulated vision and develop guiding principles for the special education program. The outcome of this work is specifically intended to:

    • Clearly define the Shoreline Special Education program vision and foundational guiding principles in order to provide a "guide" for decision making regarding instruction, supports, training, staffing, etc.
    • Ensure the vision and principles are determined by stakeholders that are representative of our community and student population.

    This committee work was paused during the school closures associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Committee work was resumed in fall of 2021 with the goal in taking recommendations to the school board in the spring of 2022.
