Meeting with Irvine Unified Special Education Executive Director

     This morning I met with the IUSD Special Education Executive Director Melanie Hertig to discuss special needs in our district.  The meeting was very productive and addressed several issues facing special needs families. Specifically the safety needs for an autistic child that goes to school with my son.

     I am happy to report that Melanie will be visiting the child's school to assess the issue herself.  I contacted the mother of the autistic child as well.  She was very happy to hear that there is progress in the right direction.

     I personally appreciate Melanie and her team doing the best they can with being underfunded.  I learned the Federal Government is not complying with certain funding guidelines. This is having a negative impact on Special Education and the IUSD overall.  I look forward to working with the Federal Government and finding real solutions that will benefit the entire district.
