Ridgefield Council of PTAs - Special Services
DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERY SCHOOL IN RIDGEFIELD HAS A SPECIAL SERVICES REPRESENTATIVE?
Special Services representatives are eager to support their school community in the following ways:
Help provide information about the special education process and/or additional learning support that might be available to students.
Help direct family members to the right school and community resources.
Offer emotional support to families through informal chats.
Provide district special education updates.
This is a PTA position, designed to support the needs of all families in the school district, especially those with children receiving special services through an IEP or 504. Special Services Representatives serve their individual school community, as well as attend monthly meetings with the Ridgefield Special Services administration.
As a council with the special services administration, representatives collaborate in the following ways:
Gather program updates from each school and from the special education administration.
Discuss special education-specific PTA programming or enrichment.
Communicate these updates to the individual schools and families we represent.
All families are welcome to contact their Special Services Representative at any time with questions or concerns. We are here to help!
News from Special Services:
Ridgefield Little League's Challenger Division provides a baseball sporting outlet for children with physical and intellectual challenges. Any child age 4 - 19 may participate. There is a lighted diamond on Route 7 which is ADA compliant and the home field for the RLL team. In addition, games will also be played at the Wilton YMCA in Wilton, CT.
There is no fee to participate and the schedule is flexible.
