Parent Support – Local Task Force
The Local Task Force for the Right to Education (LTF) serves parents in Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan and Tioga Counties. We hope to be able to contribute insightful recommendations that will improve, strengthen and help expand services for students with special needs. We provide resources, referrals, information and networking for and between our members and the community. We desire to foster strong, solid working foundations between parents and their school district’s officials, so that everyone who is invested in the education of a student receiving special education services is able to function as a team to obtain the best possible education for the student.
Should you have any questions, please contact the Local Task Force at 570-323-8561 Ext. 1007.
