    Special Education Council Members talking

    The Superintendent’s Special Education Council will discuss and provide meaningful feedback to the Superintendent regarding special education policies, procedures, and resources. Additionally, this council will be tasked with increasing the level of support and collaboration through engagement and education to the community at large as it relates to special education in Jefferson Parish Schools. This council will advise and advocate, not decide policy. 

    The council will meet four times during the 2023-2024  academic calendar year from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at alternating sites.  If selected, you are committed to attending and actively participating in council meetings on the following dates:
