The Weston Public Schools' special education program will undergo a review this year by a committee of parents, teachers, and outside professionals as part of a long-term series of curriculum reviews.
The goal of the reviews is to gauge the effectiveness of the district's two types of special education services, inclusionary programs and learning centers, as well as evaluating how more special education students at the high school level and changes in staffing have affected services, according to the school committee office.
Members of the new committee will also asked to determine whether intervention programs and regular educational offerings are doing enough to help students before they are referred to special education services. The committee will put its findings into a report due next March.
