Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome!  Parents are integral partners in the development of their child’s educational programming.  This website is designed to provide you with current information that may be of interest.  I hope you find it helpful as we continue to work together in order to provide a successful school experience for your child.

Participating in the special education or Section 504 process can be confusing and stressful at times.  We always welcome any questions you may have about special education and related services instruction.  Remember that every student with an IEP or 504 Plan has an assigned teacher-case manager who will maintain on-going communication with parents.  In addition, Willington is dedicated to supporting parents with many additional resources including:

*    Information links located on the Pupil Services Home page of this website include Contacts, Parent Resources, and Parent Information where documents such as the Parent Guide to Special Education and the 504-Parent Rights can be found.

*      A parent friendly website resource provided by The PARENT Institute is located on the Pupil Services Home page.  Click on the blue School Success: Ideas for Parents and Today’s Tips buttons to find daily tips, articles, expert advice, a searchable data base and more!

*    The Parent-Teacher Resource Center has grown!  This Resource Center is dedicated to raising awareness and understanding related to the care and education of students with disabilities.  We have added more resources to the Center’s books and videotape collection.  The Center also houses a computer that parents can use to find additional topics of interest.  The Parent-Teacher Resource Center is located in both the Hall Memorial and Center school libraries and is open during school hours for parents to use materials at the Center or check out materials for use at home.

*   The support services team is dedicated to supporting the Special Education Parent Teacher Association in Willington. The Success SEPTO email is info@successsepto.org  and the president of SEPTO, Cathy Britschock can be reached at 860-429-8333.

As always, please feel free to call, email, or visit me with questions or concerns you may have.  I welcome your thoughts and suggestions as we work together as partners in your child’s school experience.

Sincerely,

Holly DiBella-McCarthy, Director of Pupil Services
