Frost-Woodson Special Services

Frost-Woodson Special Services is a parent-student-teacher interest group, affiliated with both the Woodson PTSO and the Frost PTA, whose goal is to provide information and support to students receiving special education services and their families. Special education services comprise a range of supports, most typically delivered via an individualized education program (IEP) or Section 504 (accommodations) plan. As students progress through secondary education, and when planning for the transition to postsecondary life, our group provides essential assistance in helping identify resources and information. In addition to maintaining a Yahoo! group listserv, we work with parents and teachers at Woodson and its “feeder” schools to present special-interest programs and ensure families have easy access to information and services.

To learn more about our group, visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WoodsonSpecEd/ or e-mail Lorraine Reilly at cedge20@verizon.net.

Understanding the Woodson Parent Pledge

The Woodson Community Coalition is in place to proactively support our parents and students regarding alcohol and drug abuse on our campus and in our community. We are one of many parent-led Community Coalitions who are active throughout Fairfax County schools. We are committed to offering educational seminars and other helpful information to our parents and students on the critical issue of alcohol and drug abuse.

The consequences for not engaging proactively on this topic are serious. So please, click here to read more on this important topic, and understand the purpose of the Woodson High School Safe and Drug Free Parent Pledge.

 


Student Driver Car Magnets

These great magnets are still available in the front office -- just $8 each or 3 for $20! Both students and parents appreciate the added awareness of other drivers as they complete their 45 (or more) hours behind the wheel with a qualified driver now required before a license can be obtained.

Place the yellow-and-black STUDENT DRIVER magnets on all cars being driven, driver's door, parent's door, back of vehicle.... Everyone will feel safer.
