Dear Dighton-Rehoboth Community:


Please 'Save the Date' on your calendars for Tuesday, August 7, 2018 for a 'meet and greet' in honor of our new Interim Special Education Director, Mr. Robert Murray.  We will gather in the media center at the high school beginning at 6:30 until 8:00.


Mr. Murray, along with the administrative team, will be available for a Q & A on topics of concern to our special education parents as well as our community.  We will also have a short presentation of our new special education transportation provider.



In addition, SEPAC will be in attendance to present their upcoming events, introduce their executive board and to share how their work supports our district mission and goals.


If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to me or your respective principal. 



    Dr. Azar
