2022-2023 Special Education Recognition Awards (SERA) – May 8th at 4:00pm
Has someone made a difference this year has someone made a difference this year in your child’s school life? Has your child been supported by a particular staff person? We are seeking nominations from PARENTS for our annual Special Education Recognition Awards (SERA), honoring staff from New Haven Unified, Fremont Unified and Newark School Districts. Nominees should be individuals who have gone the extra steps to support our students: bus drivers, para-educators, teachers, volunteers, a principal, speech pathologist, crossing guards, maybe even a program specialist! You may submit your nomination by clicking on this link.

Although you can find many resources on your own, we encourage families to contact their teacher, case manager if you have any questions or concerns. If they are unable to answer your questions, principals or program specialists are here to assist you.
