Special Education Group

2021-2022 Special Education Co Chairs: Kaity Mason & Huma Zarif specialeducation@lwptsa.net

The LWPTSA Special Education Group aims to connect and support families in the LWSD community with students who receive special services through an Individualized Education Plan, 504 Plan, or Individualized Health Plan. We host monthly meetings that start with time for families to connect with one another, followed by a formal presentation on topics relevant to the SEG community and an opportunity for member questions and input. We also support families and local PTSA special education chairs through a lending library, information about resources available in our community, and updates on news relevant to the special education community. 

LWSD Special Services

Lake Washington School District’s Special Services Department is comprised of three specific areas that support students: Special Education, 504, and Health Services. The focus of the department is to provide students with disabilities or health-related challenges the tools and resources to benefit from their educational program.
