What is VOICES?
VOICES is a collaborative group of MTSD parents and staff that provides support & information to our district families. Our focus encompasses not only special education students but all students (because all students face challenges at times). We hold lecture programs called "Parent Chats,” monthly meetings, and evening parent socials. We foster communication between MTSD staff & families. We share information about resources to help families and staff support students. Our name, VOICES, stands for Voices Offering Inspiration for all Children's Educational Support.
The Vision of VOICES is to raise awareness and acceptance of diverse educational needs of students in the Mequon-Thiensville School District, encourage a climate in our schools that will increase each child's opportunities to perform to his or her potential, and empower parents, teachers and staff to empower our children.
Is VOICES for me?
If you find yourself wondering how you can help your child do better in school, or whether he or she needs a tutor, VOICES ican help answer your questions. If you have considered having your child evaluated for special education services, or if you are interested in learning what services are offered in the Mequon-Thiensville School District, VOICES can point you in the right direction. If you simply want to connect with other parents and educators who have similar questions, we invite you to engage with our welcoming and collaborative group of concerned parents and educators.
You can get involved in a number of ways, including attending VOICES meetings or Parent Chats, or by subscribing to our email update list.
