Special Needs Parent’s Meeting Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 6:00pm

Special needs Parents for the Education of All Kids

Special needs Parents for the Education of All Kids (S.P.E.A.K.) will be hosting an open forum for all Parents of special needs kids on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm at Merrimack Hall, 3320 Triana Blvd., Huntsville, Alabama 35803.

This meeting is open to any parent or guardian of a special needs child (any child with an IEP) in Huntsville City Schools. S.P.E.A.K. is a group of special needs parents in Huntsville who are concerned about the quality and direction of the education our special needs children are receiving in Huntsville City Schools.

This meeting will provide you with the following:

  • An opportunity to meet other special needs parents in Huntsville City Schools so that you may learn you are not alone in your interactions and struggles with the school system.
  • Sources of information concerning the current plan by the central office to segregate our kids into two schools.
  • A discussion about the New Superintendent Search Process.

If you are interested in this organization, please take a look at www.speakup4specialkids.org. There is also a link on that page to sign up for additional information. Just click on the “Join Us” banner at the top of the page.

If you too feel strongly about speaking for those who cannot, please consider joining us for this meeting on Wednesday, May 25th. It will be well worth your time, and it will be one more way to hold the superintendent and the board of education accountable for their decisions and actions.

Together, we will S.P.E.A.K. for those who cannot.

  1. Hi Russell, Thought you might want to know that the link to the website for S.P.E.A.K. http://www.speakup4specialkids.org/ in your blog doesn’t work. It took me a few tries to figure out why… You have it as “speakingup4kids”, instead of “speakup4kids”. Enjoyed reading your blog and thanks for the info. Tina

    1. Oops! I had it right under the “S.P.E.A.K.” and on the links on the right, but you’re right. I missed that one. Sorry about that, and thanks for letting me know!
