ATLANTA - The Atlanta Community Schools Board of Education held a special meeting about special education on Thursday. The board members went into a closed session meeting about the Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Education Service District special education agreement for 2011-12 to receive lawyer feedback.
After coming out of closed session, the board did not take a vote, action or resolution on the agreement. However, Superintendent Teresa Stauffer said special education is being provided to Atlanta students with the necessary services.
"Our kids will not go without," Stauffer said.
Atlanta does have special education services that are being paid out of the school's budget. The members of the board currently are working with their attorney to come to an agreement with AMA-ESD.
For those who are interested in this topic, it may be discussed further at the next board meeting Sept. 19 at 6 p.m.
