I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to inform you about an important initiative we have undertaken this fall regarding Special Education services in North Andover. We have initiated a comprehensive review and have contracted with a third party, Urban Collaborative to assist NAPS in facilitating this process. As part of this ongoing review, Urban Collaborative will be conducting confidential surveys, staff meetings and onsite observations. Virtual open meetings have also been organized for families and educators to engage in confidential discussions about their experiences with special education.

I hope this message finds you well as we embark on another school year. I am pleased to share that our start has been successful in many aspects. We have overcome some initial staffing challenges and currently our professional staffing is complete.  We continue to have a few district openings for the current school year.  If anyone is interested please follow this link to the Human Resources page for more information.
