Special Education Program Coordinator at Chester Upland School District

Every day is different and presents its challenges or rewards. There are deadlines to be met, new students who may enroll or transfer out. Teachers may need assistance on creating documents in the special education document system or support staff may need direction on what to do because the student they are assigned to is absent for the day. There irate parents who are frustrated and need direction and someone who will listen some days and invoices that need signatures for approval for payment or resolutions that need to be prepared for school board approval. Most days don't go as planned so you have to be flexible. It's exciting, tiring, but never boring to me when you recognize the importance of your job and the impact you make for everyone involved in just one student's education.
