Who We Are

Who We Are:​

The Citywide Council for District 75 consists of nine parents of students receiving citywide special education services in District 75 selected by the PA/PTA Officers and two appointees by the Public Advocate. A high school senior receiving citywide special education services in District 75 is selected by the superintendent of District 75 and serves as a non-voting member for one year. Parent selections and Public Advocate appointments take place every two years.

 

What We Do:​

The Citywide Council for District 75 members are representatives of the parents of students receiving citywide special education services (District 75) and the community-at–large. Members of the Citywide Council for District 75 receive information on matters affecting the provision of special education services to students. The council, in turn, must consult with a wider community of parents and comment on citywide special education policy. Our meetings will be open to the public, attended by the Superintendent and will allow the members of the community to be heard on educational issues.

 

The Citywide District 75 Council must also issue an annual report on the effectiveness of special education services and make recommendations on how to improve them. To be effective, the council will work to establish a productive working relationship with the superintendent of District 75.  

    We continue to bring to the forefront:

  • The Issues of adequate space within all newly built DOE School Buildings.

  • Annual input in the Five Year Capital Plan.

  • Increasing inclusion classes.

  • Equitable sharing of space.

  • Respectability for our students.

  • Career opportunities.

  • Expand the numbers of students to graduate with an academic diploma.

  • Students with disabilities receive their fair share within the DOE. ​
