Congratulations Dr. Lisa Colwell

Portsmouth School Department

Special Education Administrator of the Year 2018-2019

Greetings From the President


As ARIASE enters another year we look forward to working with a new Commissioner of Education and seeing what lies ahead.

We continue to work to strengthen the administration, supervision and provision of instructional and related services to students with exceptionalities so that the needs of those students needs are effectively met.

This year we will also continue to promote effective leadership through our mentoring program, and encourage the development of policies and procedures in our work with the Rhode Island Department of Education.

Thank you all for your continued membership and support!

Brad Wilson, ARIASE President
