|During the past few weeks, maaps and our member schools, have continued working hard to successfully highlight our advocacy efforts. These include our State House and legislative meetings aimed at overturning the Governor’s proposed Chapter 766 school (C766) rate freeze and fully-funding the Special Education Circuit Breaker account in next year’s state budget.
This month, we wanted to share with you the following in-depth Wicked Local article, published just last week, which covered our advocacy efforts together in great depth.

We are also proud to share links to additional links to event and issue coverage of our Legislative Events and advocacy efforts during the past month:
maaps has also continued our work with members to highlight examples of successful transition program outcomes for students at various maaps member schools. To date, media articles showcasing transition programs at RCS Learning Center, The Learning Center for the Deaf and Riverview School have been published in the past few weeks.
The highly anticipated WCVB Channel 5 A+ feature on Landmark School senior student Madison Coddinton was also aired this month. The feature can be found at http://www.wcvb.com/article/a-plus-landmark-school-s-madison-coddinton/8961707
We’ll continue to share updates and information with you as we continue pressing forward. Thanks so much for staying engaged with us and for all that you do!
