• Parent Advisory Committee Members

    Dear Parents,

    We, as parents of students with disabilities, invite you to become acquainted with the programs, persons, and organizations available to help you and your child.

    This web site is one means the school has of informing you of the new as well as existing laws in special education. It is meant as a starting point for finding programs and services appropriate to the individual student’s needs.
    Your participation is of vital importance in helping your child reach his or her fullest potential. You know your student better than anyone does.

    The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) works cooperatively with the local and intermediate school districts to help assure the continued high-quality special education programs and services in our county. The PAC is composed exclusively of parents of students with disabilities.

    Please feel free to contact any committee member with your concerns, questions or comments or call your local school. We welcome you at our meetings. For the date and time of the next meeting, please call the Kalamazoo RESA special education office.
