The July meeting will provide for an orientation/interactive discussion by the Northeast Regional Resource Center on IDEA advisory boards.

Agendas for subsequent meetings will be set by the panel and posted on the Department’s website at

If you need an interpreter or other services required by those with disabilities to ensure the opportunity to benefit from the meetings, please contact Kara Farwell at at least 10 days prior to the meeting.
