Special Needs Highlights

  • They may not ride the school bus, but these special needs students are getting help from their school. The Miami-Herald tells the story of the Merrick Educational Center "the only public school in Miami-Dade County that works with homebound, hospitalized or special needs children who are unable to attend a traditional school. The school goes from pre-K to 12th grade."
  • It's not what we think of when we talk about a Special Needs Rodeo. (We'll be posting the results from Special Needs Roadeo in Indianapolis soon, we promise). But the California High School Roadeo association is letting some special needs students lasso and ride life-size "broncos" and "horses" hand rocked by volunteered.
  • Another special needs Rodeo of the same breed is looking for pardn'rs to volunteer for the event.

We want this to be an open forum for the hundreds of thousands of people that are involved in transporting special needs students each day. We want to hear what you think, what's going on at your facility and what solutions you've found. But, please, keep it civil. Just like on the bus, we'll have no tolerance for attacks or anything defamatory. We won't write you up, but we'll delete the comments right away. So don't bother. But if you have something to share, this is your place.
