Exceptional Education

PTSA Exceptional education Committee

SRV Council PTAs Special Needs CommitteeThe San Ramon Valley Council of PTA’s Exceptional Education Committee (formerly Special Needs) fosters collaboration among parents, teachers, schools, and the community to support children with special needs. Many schools have an Exceptional Education Committee Representative on their local PTA/PTSA who represents the school on our Council Committee, provides information back to the school, and may plan programs or get-acquainted gatherings for the school site. Your Dougherty Valley High School Exceptional Education Committee Representatives for 2020-21 are Anita Kant and Sanjog Kaur.

What We Do

  • Provide information and support to parents and staff so they can help children with special needs succeed.
  • Help ALL children and adults understand and appreciate challenges faced by children with special needs.
  • Work legislatively to secure and retain adequate laws and funding for children with special needs.

Be sure to bookmark the SRV Council of PTAs Special Needs webpage, on which you can find information, resources and links. In addition, be sure to bookmark the SRVUSD Special Needs page, where information on Special Education in our district is available.
