We are parents of special needs children
that attend Gilbert schools. We have volunteered to serve on this
Council because we strongly believe we can make a difference in our
special education community.
Through our efforts, we hope to enable you to become effective advocates for your children.

There are no upcoming events to display.
Our focus is on:
Acting as liaisons between the district, the schools, and families regarding special education issues
- Responding to parents' information needs
- Providing training to parents
- Maintaining the Gilbert Special Education Resource Library
- Encouraging the development of the Gilbert special education community.
addition, some members of the Council have undergone training to become
IEP Parent Partners. This training goes in-depth into the
Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and the evaluation process. These
Gilbert parents want to ensure that all parents are fully-participating
members of the IEP team.
Please feel free to contact either your local school representative
or a parent that has experience in a particular disability.
Also, the IEP Parent Partners
are waiting to hear from you with your questions and concerns. If your
school is not currently represented and you would like to volunteer to
be a representative on the Council, contact your principal.
