Parents of Diverse Learners

The Office of Diverse Learner Supports and Services (ODLSS) offers a parent group and a range of services and resources to help families of diverse learners navigate special education and ensure their children have a free and appropriate public education that meets their unique needs and prepares them for employment, further education, and independent living.
