As we near the mid-point of another school year, please remember that your area education agency (AEA) is ready to assist you with any student needs, resources or projects. We understand that this time of year can be hectic, both inside and outside of the classroom.

AEA staff work in your building on a weekly basis providing support services for students who may need extra help or who have IEPs. You may see school psychologists, social workers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, special education strategists, instructional coaches and physical therapists, to name a few of the professionals supplied by the AEA. These employees work with students and families on an as-needed basis, and they often serve as a member of an IEP team, facilitating education for a child needing extra assistance. Please let us know how we can help you and your students succeed!

In addition, check out your favorite blogs here and share your thoughts with us so that we can help one another in our mission of learning and helping children succeed:

For a complete listing of all blogs, please go to the Northwest AEA website. You can also sign up for an RSS feed to automatically receive blog updates (instructions provided).

Happy Holidays,

Tim Grieves, Chief Administrator
