PTSA Special Education Group

The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) Special Education Group (SEG), formally known as the PTSA Special Needs Group, is made up of parents in Lake Washington School District whose children receive special services (IEP) and/or classroom support (504), and parents interested in resources and support for any student with learning challenges. The group meets every month except for December and June. Anyone is welcome to attend these informative meetings, which provide opportunities to:

  • Hear from speakers
  • Learn about resources in the community
  • Network with other parents
  • Keep updated on district and PTSA issues affecting children with special needs

As meeting topics are determined, details will be posted to the LW Council PTSA website at

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.

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