Today the BFT hosted a summit for teachers working under the special services umbrella (SPED, Psych, SLP, GOAL, ASEP). The meeting lasted two hours and was attended by almost 50 teachers who broke into small groups by grade level, pinpointing problem areas and arriving at strategies to improve the SPED program in Bristol. The content of today’s summit will guide upcoming BFT discussions with the BOE, Central Office, and city leaders. Thank you to all who attended and made this first step toward turning around the SPED program!
