The survey gives parents of students receiving special education services the opportunity to provide feedback on their school involvement and provide comments on their child's school. This type of parent input is critical in determining if the district will meet the requirements for the state's Annual Performance Report. The parent survey is available online at www.esesurvey.com or www.pcsb.org/ese.

The volunteer position is a summer program, and time slots will be relatively flexible. Not only does this new, unique program allow students to fulfill volunteer hours, but it also is an opportunity for personal growth through service in bettering the lives of children with severe medical conditions. I really do believe this program is going to change the lives of both the volunteers and the children. I truly hope news of this opportunity spreads to students in the area
