QVSD Special Education Plan
Every three years QVSD is required to revise its Special Education plan as part of the Comprehensive Planning process.  The school district's special education plan is an action plan that describes the district's commitment to ensure that a quality education will be provided to each of its students with a disability eligible for special education, over the upcoming three years. Quaker Valley's plan is due to PDE by July 31, 2022. The plan, which requires school board approval prior to submission, must also be available to the public for a 28-day review process. Quaker Valley's draft plan was posted on the district's website Monday, May 16, and is available for preview in hard copy at the district office until Tuesday, June 14 when the board will vote on the plan that will be in place through June 2025. Anyone who has questions or comments on the proposed plan should reach out to Mike Lewis, Director of Student Services at lew[email protected]
