Bethel appoints new supervisor of special education services

State laws are changing when it comes to special education.  Bethel has appointed a new supervisor to oversee special services in secondary and middle schools in the district.  BHS special education coordinator Meghan Stabile was appointed during a special Board of Ed meeting on Tuesday.  The Newstimes reports that a new IEP, individualized educational plan, is coming out which reclassifies the two positions into one.  State laws are also changing when it comes to transition services for students with disabilities.  The services are already provided to children with autism starting at age 14, but the change lowers the age for students with other disabilities from 16 to age 14.
