Parents gathered at Central Middle School Tuesday to discuss the results of a recent exam examining Greenwich’s special education program.
The report, which was produced by a consulting firm, was unveiled earlier this year, but Tuesday was the first opportunity for the public to share their thoughts.
It took over a year to write and research the report. Parents and teachers were interviewed and interviewed.
The report’s authors recommend sweeping changes to the way special education works in Greenwich public schools, such as changing the name of the program.
The results show that children from minority communities or from low-income families are more likely to be placed in special schools. It also says that the curriculum needs to be improved.
This meeting comes after the longtime head of the program leaves last week. Your interim representation is already in use.
