OSD Special Education Parent Teacher Organization
The Special Education PTO works to improve each child's school experience by connecting parents and educators with information and with one another. The PTO works in partnership with the District, making recommendations for the annual budget, educational programs, and any other topics concerning our students.
The PTO meets monthly during the school year and provides informative programs on a wide variety of topics including community resources, District programs, managing the IEP process, and much more. Meetings are open to everyone—parents, guardians, Special Education and general education teachers, family members, administrators, paraeducators and therapists. You may attend any or all meetings.
