Parent Advisors for Special Education (PASE)

The Kent ISD has a parent advisory committee that provides input related to the improvement of special education services within Kent County. PASE members participate in the development and modifications of our intermediate school district's plan, review deviation requests, and give input related to monitoring activities. Members are updated with current changes in federal and state laws, regulations and policies. They are also offered the opportunity to attend inservice trainings related to topics of interest. PASE members assist special education administrators in disseminating information to parents in our local school district.

The parent advisory committee and its officers consist of parents of students with disabilities and can represent each local school district and public school academy. PASE members are appointed by their local school boards and the Kent ISD board and serve a three year term.

If you are interested in becoming a member of PASE, contact your local PASE representatives, Nanette Mosby at 887-4924, Heidi Brouwer at 887-8125, or Beth Carney 706-8288 or the Kent ISD at 965-2297 for more information. Even if you don't want to become a member, PASE meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to attend anytime.

PASE meetings are at KISD from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Coldwater Room at Educational Service Center (Parking lot #11)
