Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Advisory: Sharing the Commitment
The School District of Collier County has an Advisory Committee for Exceptional Student Education (special education). It is comprised of a cross representation of parents, teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders. Meetings address district and state issues. Meetings are not a forum to discuss individual situations or student concerns. The Advisory Committee for ESE operates collaboratively in order to gain and share information from its Board members and guests.
Advisory Meeting Dates for 2018-2019: September 15, November 27, January 22, March 26, and May 28.
