ESE Advisory Council Meeting

Dear families,

The next meeting of the ESE Advisory Council will take place on Thursday, Sept. 12.

The ESE Advisory Council explores ways to improve services for ESE students and works with district staff on developing strategies to make these improvements possible.

The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 5:30 p.m. inside the media center of the Gibbons Street Preschool Center, 1860 E. Gibbons St. in Bartow.

Additionally, Polk County Public Schools recently contracted with District Management Group to conduct an extensive review of the services provided for struggling learners — both with and without disabilities. Following the meeting, a focus group will begin at approximately 6 p.m. This focus group is part of the review process, and the goal is to help identify future opportunities for improvement.

Parents and guardians whose children participate in Exceptional Student Education programs are invited to attend and share their insights.

We hope you will join us. Thank you.
