New Committee Chair!
Huma Zarif is the Carson Special Education Committee chair for the 2022-23 school year and is serving for a 2nd year as the co-chair of the LWSD PTSA Council Special Education Group. Please contact Huma at with any questions or ideas on how best the Special Education Committee can serve you and your student. 
This month the LWPTSA Council Special Education Group (SEG) will not be hosting our typical monthly meeting. Instead, we are excited to invite you to join the Seattle Public Schools Special Education PTSA, the Arc of King County, and several additional local organizations for an evening with clinical psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Ross Greene. 
Dr. Greene will explain Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) as a way of supporting all learners so they can access their education. CPS provides an alternative to discipline practices that often create barriers for students in our schools. Following his presentation, Ramona Hattendorf, Director of Advocacy for the Arc of King County, will facilitate a Q&A with Dr. Greene. We are excited to hear from Dr. Greene and hope you are able to join!
