Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! I am looking forward to another great year at Platte County School District #2. There have been some exciting additions to our Special Services Department over the summer months. The educators and programs below make up a comprehensive array of support staff and services designed to enhance student learning, raise expectations and promote student success throughout our district.
We continue to strengthen our special services interventions at Guernsey-Sunrise School by providing a focus on Reading, Written Language, Communication and Math through inclusion opportunities as well as direct service for students requiring extra support. In addition, the Platte County School District transitional program is moving forward by developing vocational opportunities at school and within the community for our students to gain valuable work site experience.
The special education department will continue its hard work this school year to provide recommendations for strengthening the department.
I remain committed to improved student learning and opening the lines of communication between families and school support teams. Parent information sessions and resource links will be provided throughout the school year, so please check the district website regularly and check your mail boxes for our monthly connections letter home. I look forward to another year of quality student programming, academic growth, and pride in our schools and community. I am available to you by phone at 307-836-2733 ext. 113 and email at email@example.com. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to working with you this year to ensure a successful school experience for all!
In the Interest of Students,
Director of Special Education Services
