Special Ed Programs in PWCS to get More Funds

As reported in Inside NOVA, the PWC School Board has allocated an additional $2.5 million to special ed programs in the district, in order to remain in compliance with federal special ed regulations.  While we applaud PWCS for allocating the additional funds, like school board candidate Alyson Satterwhite, we  have to ask what services those funds will be used to provide.

PWCS has a reputation for poorly addressing the needs of special ed students.  Certainly there is room for improvement, but throwing more money won’t solve the problems within our special ed department unless those funds are allocated appropriately.

As such, we are calling on Superintendent Walts and the members of the PWC School Board to explain how those additional $2.5 million will be allocated and what improvements they are expected to provide.
