13 June 2010GDRSD SpedPAC Annual Presentation13 Special Recognition: Dr. Alan Genovese “ I have to say that, at present, our PAC has a strong, collaborative, respectful relationship with District Administration as well as with teachers, parents, the community-at-large and the School Committee…. I truly believe that having this kind of relationship is directly related to what a PAC can accomplish in their respective district and how effective they can be. And, when you have that, it’s amazing what PACs and educational staff/administration can work together to accomplish and subsequently, what can be done and carried out for children – all learners – in the classroom because that is where the ultimate focus should be… on the students….” Nancy Bugbee, President – Groton-Dunstable SpedPAC – Spring, 2010 Quote granted permission for use by Ms. Amanda Green, MassPAC Coordinator/Information Specialist for The Federation for Children with Special Needs at the March, 2010 conference of the Massachusetts Association of Administrators of Special Education in Marlborough, MA
