Since 2016, the Howard County Autism Society (HCAS) and the Howard County Special Education Citizens Advisory Council (SECAC) have partnered to jointly host a Board of Education Candidate Forum on Special Education.  Since the forum planned for March had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, we sent a list of 6 questions to each of the candidates to get their take on the state of Special Education in HCPSS, and potential future improvements.  This page provides links for each of the candidates who have submitted a response.  We encourage you to check out their thoughts on special education  before submitting your ballot!
