Public Forum

As authorized by the State Superintendent, the Council may conduct one public forum per year. The purpose of this public forum is to assist council members in advising the State Superintendent of Public Instruction on the educational needs of students who receive special education through an Individualized Education Program.

The Public Forum allows the State Superintendent’s Advisory Council on Special Education to:

• Listen to families, school administrators, educators, community representatives, etc.

• Gather input on the unique challenges and successes of special education in Wisconsin

• Advise the State Superintendent and the Department of Public Instruction.

• Hear about any topic upon which people may choose to comment.

For more information on this public forum please contact Rita Fuller,
