The PNG Building Representatives. The 2019-2020 school year is an important time to collaborate with North Allegheny’s Special Education Department on future planning. Our members and building representatives will be involved in conversations that will shape the program for years to come. The more input we have, the stronger the outcome will be! Each of the 12 district buildings needs a parent representative who can attend the Chapter 14 and SEAC (Special Education Advisory Committee) meetings on 10/10/2019, 2/3/2020, and 4/16/2020 from 1-3pm at the Central Administration Office, Hillvue Lane. Please contact our rep coordinator, Christina Yauch at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about becoming a building representative.
Consumer concerns meetings are scheduled this year for October 2019 and April 2020. The PNG President and Building Reps Coordinator will meet with The North Allegheny Director of Student Services and the two Directors of Special Education. Topics of concern will be gathered through discussions at PNG meetings and information shared by our building representatives. Until we have established the list of our representatives, concerns may be emailed to email@example.com.
