Introducing A.C.E. It 25 (All Children Excel)

“ACE It 25” is a PTA council committee that has been established in District 25 to support families of children with identified physical, behavioral, emotional, and intellectual needs. The committee’s primary goals are:

● To bring together parents, families, and teachers of children with special needs for sharing of experiences

● To be a resource to local unit PTAs and their communities on the needs of these

● To help provide important education for the PTA Presidents to take back to their schools

● To help support PTA communication in understanding the best way to provide support
for children with special needs while attending PTA functions

● To help improve the lives of the children by providing cultural, social and physical enrichment through PTA programs

● To advocate for children with special needs

● To foster parent involvement by providing opportunities for parents to get to know each other, communicate information, provide a forum for exchanging ideas and suggestions across the district
