    PTSA Special Education Chairpersons

    It is our goal that every campus in Lake Washington School District have a PTSA Special Education Chairperson. The chairperson keeps the families of that school informed of the PTSA SEG's upcoming monthly meetings. They can often answer a family's questions about special education. To find out the name of your campus PTSA SEG Chairperson, contact your school PTSA. If your campus does not have a chairperson to answer your questions and/or you would like to learn more about becoming a chairperson, please contact the LWPTSA Special Education Group.

    A district-wide group has been formed to share information about dyslexia. To join, please Randi Johnson.

    For questions about special education preschool programs in the district, contact Kim Brenner.
