Dedication to Special Education is the "PTA" for special education in Marin County. Our mission is to improve the quality of special ed through our programs of support for classrooms, teacher training, the Technology Resource Center, in addition to connecting our families for a stronger community. Ours is truly a community partnership, where parents, educators and community work together on behalf of the 4000 special education students in Marin.
We work in partnership with the Marin County Office of Education, which acts as our fiscal sponsor. Each year we raise about $150,000, and we retain control over how our money is distributed to our programs. Our main program areas are Grants to Special Educators, Teacher Training, and the Technology Resource Center of Marin. Our volunter executive board consists of roughly 12 parents.
We invite you to join us by participating in our many activities and fund raising events.
DSE is a proud partner of Schools Rule Marin, the first county-wide collaboration coming together to benefit every student in every district in Marin. This year DSE received $63,000 from Schools Rule for programs of teacher training and grants to special educators.
