The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) requires all school districts in the state to develop a Special Education Plan. The plan is an action plan that describes the local Board of School Director's commitment to ensure that a quality education will be provided to each of its students with a disability eligible for special education, over the upcoming three years. The content of the special education plan describes the special education program and services that are provided within a school district and those special education programs and services which are accessed by the school district from outside the school district's geographical boundaries.
I am pleased to report that Greater Johnstown School District’s proposed Special Education Plan is available for public review until March 30th, 2018.
The plan will be officially adopted by the Board of School Directors at their April meeting and submitted to PDE.
I encourage you to review the District’s Special Education Plan provided in the link below. A hard copy is also available at the Central Administration Office on Broad Street. If you have comments regarding the proposed Special Education Plan, please submit them to me in writing, via mail, fax at 814-533-5662, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
