Those who commented in this article are not being 100% truthful. The reason for the changes to our special ed is because it needs to be reconfigured in order to complete the consolidation of WAEC and SSELC. By reconfiguring special ed within the district, they are planning on opening up classroom space at WAEC that was once designated to special ed and even architecturally built for special ed. The side effect that the district is counting on for budgetary reasons is that they will be working this in a manner to cut and save money in this area too. This is about cost savings, not improving our special ed programming.

Saveourschools...it's obvious u didn't attend the committee meeting b/c the presentation outlined 5 learning support rooms, 2life skills, OT/PT & a resource room. So, moving the programs may free up 1 classroom, 2 at best. Why does everything involving w/ the district have to be perceived so negatively? Have you called district administrators to discuss? If so, you would learn this is about providing good programming to students in need of the services. This is about children.

If I were a parent with kids in Sheffield or Youngsville I would be having a fit that they are going to ship every Emotional Support student in the county to these schools.

Warrengrant, I was at the meeting. I've also spoken to administration and the principal of WAEC. If special ed is not reconfigured and classrooms moved out of WAEC, the consolidation does not work. The administrator I spoke to last week said this is about saving money. Sounds like you may be another administrator or a board member trying make everyone look the other way while the administration continues to get a free pass at everything they want to do. We have a rubber stamp board who has forgot that this is suppose to be about children and education.
