Thank you for your interest in the WSEAC.
Meeting cancellation policy
When Warwick Schools are closed due to weather related issues, there will be no WSEAC meeting. Check this website for up to the minute meeting information.
Part of the WSEAC's mission is to disseminate information on district, state and federal special education issues, provide a forum for parent information and support, and act as a local resource for families with concerns about their child's educational needs. Our committee is comprised of a diverse group of individuals, including parents, students, teachers, administrators, school committee members, therapists, and anyone else with a concern for our children who receive special education services. The WSEAC is interested in what is happening with all of our children, in all of our schools, in the area of special education. As our meeting attendance numbers continue to grow, it is, unfortunately, impossible for us to address each parent's personal individual concerns, as a whole committee, during our limited meeting time.
Because our meeting time as a committee is limited to once per month for two hours, it is imperative that our agenda items be addressed. This is the time that we review old and new committee business, along with receiving important updates and information from the Director of Special Services and the School Committee in regards to the state of special education services in Warwick. Therefore, we would like to reserve time at the end of each meeting for the purpose of providing support, information or resources to parents with a specific, individual concern . This allows time for committee members to more effectively focus on assisting the individual with their issues and concerns. We understand parents attend our meetings to access support with problem solving, and we want to make sure we have ample time to provide that support, along with addressing the business of the WSEAC.
On behalf of the entire WSEAC, we thank you for your cooperation.
