Special Education Week in New Jersey

A special thanks to all who make a difference in the lives of our special needs students at Woodbury --

the teachers, aides, instructional assistants, secretaries, administrators, parents and consultants. We have many important individuals who positively impact our children on a daily basis. It is truly spectacular to see the opportunities afforded Woodbury students due to the unique training and cooperative spirit of all those involved.

Again -- thank you.

TRENTON, May 11, 2009 — Gov. Jon S. Corzine has proclaimed May 10-16 as Special Education Week in New Jersey.

Special Education Week recognizes the achievements of the state’s 244,000 students with special needs and the commitment of their parents and teachers. The New Jersey School Boards Association and ASAH, a non-profit organization representing private schools serving students with disabilities, have sponsored Special Education Week since 1985. This year’s theme is “Opening the Door to Success.”

“The public school districts and the private schools of New Jersey make a major contribution to the public welfare by preparing thousands of exceptional persons to participate as citizens of this state and as members of society,” states the governor’s proclamation.

“I call upon all citizens to recognize the achievements of New Jersey’s special education students and the outstanding contributions made by educators, school board members, schools and agencies for the handicapped and parents toward quality education for the exceptional citizens of our state,” the proclamation continues.
