WWP SEPTSA is a district-wide PTSA building strong partnerships among parents, teachers, students and the school administration and community. We strive to help students with special education services, Section 504 accommoda-tions, or in need of support so that they can be better understood, integrated and embraced by our school district and community.

Join us for our 3rd PTSA meeting followed by our speaker, Beth Manes.

She'll help help parents understand how testing and other documentation can guide the goals and progress. Contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and discuss any questions.

“Disability is natural. We must stop believing that disabilities keep a person from doing something. Because that’s not true . . . Having a disability doesn’t stop me from doing anything.” - Benjamin Snow, from his essay "Attitudes About People with Disabilities"
Brave is when my child with a learning disability or any disability gets up and goes to school. Brave is when at that place of learning, they feel so very overwhelmed and isolated, and they know they learn differently from others. Brave is when they come home to hours of homework and do it even though its hard, they cry .... but they keep on going because they know you have their back. -- Anonymous Parent
