Special Education Parent Council

We are parents of special needs children that attend Gilbert schools.  We have volunteered to serve on this Council because we strongly believe we can make a difference in our special education community.  


Through our efforts, we hope to enable you to become effective advocates for your children.


Our focus is on:

Acting as liaisons between the district, the schools, and families regarding special education issues

  • Responding to parents' information needs
  • Providing training to parents
  • Maintaining the Gilbert Special Education Resource Library
  • Encouraging the development of the Gilbert special education community.


In addition, some members of the Council have undergone training to become IEP Parent Partners.  This training goes in-depth into the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and the evaluation process. These Gilbert parents want to ensure that all parents are fully-participating members of the IEP team.


Please feel free to contact either your local school representative or a parent that has experience in a particular disability.


Also, the IEP Parent Partners are waiting to hear from you with your questions and concerns.  If your school is not currently represented and you would like to volunteer to be a representative on the Council, contact your principal.
