The Safety committee is charged with providing guidance and resources to support the whole child. Safety encompasses physical, social and emotional wellness. Mental and physical health takes precedence for this committee. With the use of research and collaboration along with the promotion of proactive behaviors, this committee will work with and advise the community regarding safety concerns.

District 75 Travel Training Program

The District 75 Travel Training Program was founded by Peggy Groce in 1970, who directed the program until 2018. For the past fifty years, instructors have been teaching students with all types of disabilities except for blindness and low vision to travel alone on the bus or subway. The D75 program is the largest and longest-running in the country and has served as a model for other travel training programs around the country, including Easter Seals Project Action. Travel training fosters independence and can lead to increased opportunities for employment and is a crucial part of education for young people with disabilities.
