  • 2016 Pikes Peak Interagency Transition Team Directory

    Posted by Linda Koch on 5/18/2016

    The Pikes Peak Interagency Transition Team was created in 1992 when transition services were mandated by the State, and transition coordinators needed to tell families what resources were available. The PPITT has evolved so that agencies and providers can stay updated, connected and to network. PPITT also publishes an annual resource directory and hosts an annual resource fair. In addition, PPITT has a listserv where events, etc. are posted and forwarded by members.


    Attached is the 2016 Directory.

Special Education Advisory Committee

  • Tyra Young

    The role of the D49 Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) supports and shapes the quality services for children with disabilities.

    The committee’s work is critical and the benefits support our students. The committee can increase involvement, strengthen communication and improve relationships among stakeholders. The SEAC helps ensure that students with special needs receive the most appropriate education. D49 SEAC is used to provide suggestions to improve performance indicators from the State Performance Plan and services for students with disabilities. When district-wide collaboration improves, programming for students with and without disabilities is strengthened, setting the stage for improved student achievement.

    The Special Education Department in D49 embraces the mission statement for SEAC committees as outlined by the Colorado Department of Education.  Our mission is to actively represent children/youth with disabilities and impact decisions made on their behalf to enhance the quality of educational services.
