If you are a parent of a special needs child enrolled in the Bethalto School District, you are invited to a special forum tonight.  The district has been selected for a focused monitoring review regarding educational placement decisions for students with disabilities.  The Illinois State Board of Education is organizing it.

Bethalto Schools Superintendent Charles Stegall tells The Big Z the state board is holding these meetings all over the state.

You will have a chance to comment after a member of the state board shares some information.  The state has requested that district staff and administration do not attend the forum, unless they are also parents of a special needs child enrolled in the district.  Tonight’s meeting begins at 6:30 at the administration building on Texas Boulevard.
