How Will the Candidates Support

Special Education ?

 

Candidates for FBISD and SMSD School Board Elections

Voting Day for our local city, school and MUD candidates is May 10, 2014.  Voters will have the opportunity to vote for their choice of candidates.  School board members have the ability to impact the Special Education programs in each school district.  As an advocacy organization, The Arc can advocate/lobby for issues – not candidates.  But how do you know where the candidates stand on the issue of Special Education?  In order to find out, The Arc sponsored a “Candidates Forum” hosted by the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce which was held at City Centre at Quail Valley.

The forum was not designed in a question/answer format, however, each candidate was asked to voluntarily answer a question posed by The Arc to ascertain their “position” on Special Education. 

Below is a list of the candidates who received the question via email :

FBISD

Position 1 – West FBC: Jason Burdine, Ramesh Cherivirala, Sardar Qaisar Imam, C. J. Udoagwu,

Position 4 – At Large: Bruce Albright, Deron R. Harrington, Kristin K. Tassin, Rodrigo Carreon

Position 5 – East FBC:Patsy Taylor, Kris Allfrey, K. P George

SMSD

Christopher Caldwell, Mike Guerra, Xavier Herrera, Lisa A. Thompson, Rodney Butler

Question from The Arc: "In the fall of 2013, FBISD had 4,500 students enrolled in special education classes and Stafford MSD has 284 students receiving special education services.  What is your plan to support the superintendent in assuring that each student receives an appropriate, individualized educational plan?"

 

Responses of those who voluntarily answered can be viewed here.
