ESE (Parent Involvement Council) PIC:
Lake Wales Charter Schools is excited about the growth and participation of our ESE PIC Council. We are a group of ESE parents, educators and community members who want to educate ourselves and others on how to support our students with disabilities and how to access the many available resources. We also join forces with various state and local agencies, as well as state discretionary projects who support students with disabilities and help educate us and our parents/guardians on the many resources available to students with disabilities. Our meetings are held virtually. In the future we hope to have the meetings in person, which will allow us to participate in some hands-on activities. Please call the charter office at (863) 679-6560 or email at Jennifer.Barrow@lwcharterschools.com and we will be happy to add you to our email list for notification of all upcoming meetings and activities. Our goal is to continue to grow, nurture and empower our ESE PIC Council to provide support to all children with disabilities.
