The article focuses on parents whose children attend District 75 programs and are mandated to receive services during the summer. Please note Chancellor Carranza's comments regarding this issue. Apparently, there are no easy solutions. Original Article: https://www.disabilityscoop.com/2020/... READ MORE >>
