Mission of Special Needs Committee

The Mission of the Special Needs Comittee at Montair is to provide information and support to parents and staff so they can help children with special needs succeed.  We want to help all children and adults understand and appreciate challenges faced by children with special needs.  We advocate and work legislatively to secure and retain adequate laws and funding for children with special needs.
