The planning for the Shoreline Special Needs PTSA began during the summer of 2013. A group of Shoreline, WA School District parents of children with special needs felt a group to support other parents and collaborate with the teachers and administration was needed in our district. The process to formalize our group started in August, was chartered on September 8, and our application was officially approved by the State PTA on September 17, 2013!
The chapter continues to grow and solidify its role in the district. Our impact includes:
- Increasing awareness and interest among Shoreline schools about how to be more inclusive
- District administration and teachers attending meetings and reaching out to collaborate on family/child needs related to special education issues
- More families feeling an increased sense of community and connectedness via our Facebook page, meetings and social time
- Members learning about important community supports available to them and their children
