Parent Council

Parent Council for Parents of Students with Disabilities

President: Lawanda Griffin, Parent

Capital School District, Per the State of Delaware statute 14 Del.C. §3125, supports the facilitation of a parent council designed for the parents of students with disabilities. This council was formed in January of 2016. This council, meets on a regular basis, as determined by the council, and the hope is it will act as a general advocate for students with disabilities and provide person-to-person support for individual parents and children as needed.
