BROWARD COUNTY ESE ADVISORY COUNCIL
Working to Ensure a Bright Future For Our Students
THE ADVISORY AT A GLANCE
The Broward ESE Advisory Council is a group of parent volunteers who strive to ensure beneficial opportunities for students with learning differences. The advisory promotes meaningful inclusion while working to ensure that our children benefit from the best educational practices and advocate for a stronger system of supports for our students, teachers and support staff.
WHAT WE DO
The ESE Advisory Council is established under the Broward County Public School Policy to provide recommendations to the School Board and the Superintendent on systemic issues affecting
exceptional student education.
At our meetings we provide a forum for information about our district schools, programs, advocacy, support, procedural guidelines, Individual Education Plans (IEP), 504 Plans, college, vocational, and career readiness, school board initiatives, education enrichment, resources and data.
We track proposed, new and existing federal, state, and county legislation and local policies
addressing special education.
Everyone is welcome to attend and participate. We encourage you to bring forward systemic issues that are affecting our ESE students. If you have a specific concern you need addressed, the opportunity to submit your request for someone from the district to contact you directly will be provided. Our monthly ESE Chair Report is presented to the Broward County School Board while continuing communication is maintained with our
ESLS - Exceptional Student Learning Support department.

Learn to communicate better with your secondary student's teachers.
This Thursday, January 7 at 4 pm we will be hosting a teacher/professional panel on zoom to discuss improving caregiver/teacher relationships. We know that this can be even more challenging once your student hits the secondary level (middle and high school) so we have asked them specifically to join us to answer your questions. Even if your child is in elementary, there will still be important information and we're always a fun group to spend an afternoon with. All Exceptionalties Welcome!
