    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.
