Meet the Superintendent

Episode 45: Supporting 1,700 Special Education Students

December 2 is Special Education Day, an annual commemoration of the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. In honor of this important day, Superintendent Dr. Scott Wyndham sits down for a conversation with Director of Special Education Susie Hurt to talk about the wide range of services Avon's Special Education team provides for more than 1,700 students with special needs from developmental preschool through graduation and beyond. Hear about how Mrs. Hurt and other district leaders are supporting the women and men who serve our students with special needs, and find out what she regards as her favorite part of her job. Spoiler: It's about the relationships she develops with Avon students and their families.
