Why Parent Advisory?
Special Education Parent Advisory Groups are required for all school districts in New Jersey. The purpose of these groups is to provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to their districts on critical issues. New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14-1.2(h) states that:
Each board of education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.
The Northfield Public School District established the Parent Advisory Committee as a forum for parents to provide input to the district regarding students with disabilities. We welcome the participation of all parents.
The mission of the Northfield School District's Special Education Parent Advisory Committee is to facilitate communication between parents, staff, the Board of Education, and the community, regarding the district's special education programs, to provide families with meaningful support, education and information, and to provide input to the District on issues concerning students with disabilities.
