BOLD is a PTA council made up of parent representatives from each school. 
The goal of the BOLD council is to foster inclusion and support families

with students who fall under the umbrella of special education.

This includes students with IEP and 504 plans as well as students in the self-contained program.

For more information or to provide feedback, please contact your school's representative below.



Please join the BOLD community on Nov. 4 and hear from our special education department.  Faculty from the skill/resource room in elementary / middle / high schools will speak about how the students are supported and will offer strategies that parents can use in the home to facilitate their children's organizational skills.  BOLD will also discuss ways to connect families and build a cohesive BOLD community that serves all our families. 

Our plans and ideas include:

1. Three Council Open Meetings:  November 4, 2020; February 3, 2021 and April 21, 2021.  Topics TBA.

2. We are working on developing Zoom Groups that will meet throughout the school year to offer support and connection for families to discuss the most pertinent topics concerning the BOLD community.

3. Coming this fall in the High School we will be offering a "transitioning to college" presentation with a representative from Landmark College.

4. Zoom Socials for the Self-Contained classes.

Join us in learning more and we look forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions. Please email niamhhartnett@optonline.net with any questions or feedback you may have.
