Special Education Parent Teacher Organization
The South Orange-Maplewood Special Education Parent Teacher Organization (Special Education PTO) provides parents with tools and information to work collaboratively with the school district, and to be more effective advocates for their children. We host monthly meetings to help families network with other families to navigate special education, and share information about concerns, successes, and resources.
We support on-going professional development of district staff and teachers, and encourage comprehensive, thoughtful inclusion of differently-abled children in our communities. In partnership with the Parenting Center we host a monthly meeting where all members of the community are welcome.
