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.
