PAC
The Webster Groves Parent Advisory Council (PAC) will have its first meeting of the 2018-2019 year on Monday, September 10th.  The PAC will meet at the Steger Six Grade Center's Library from 6:00-8:00 pm to discuss the PAC's goals and mission, share resources, network and share the results of our online survey.  The Webster Groves district Parent Advisory Council (PAC) was formed by families who expect that children with disabilities and/or unique learning needs are educated effectively, afforded the dignity of belonging, and valued throughout all Webster Groves School District learning opportunities and experiences. PAC representatives communicate regularly and directly with Special School District (SSD) and Webster Groves administrators about the needs and interests of students who have IEPs and 504 plans. At our meetings, from 6:00-7:00 pm, all teachers and administrators are welcome and encouraged to attend; 7:00-8:00 pm is time dedicated for parents to share ideas, concerns and resources.  Please contact Rebecca O'Laughlin (rebeccamichellelinz@gmail.com) with any questions/concerns.
