My concern is for special education. I have 3 children in PPS, and 2 receive Special Ed assistance. If this budget is cut anymore, the impact will be felt by everyone. I don't think parents realize that the assitants and learning centers keep children learning and part of the classrooms. Without the help, behavior in classrooms will be impacted and children will not learn as much. It feels like a hidden necesity at schools. You don't realize the value of special ed unless your child receives these services but without the help our schools will not be able to perform at the same level and all children will be impacted. If this budget is cut more, I really believe that IEP goals will not be met and the district will be fielding lawsuits from families. Special Ed is not an elective and cannot be cut anymore.
