The archdiocesan Schools of Special Education will host a virtual parent information night on Wednesday, May 19 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Families can meet Danielle Heeney, director of special education for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, who works directly with its three special education schools including Our Lady of Confidence School at the St. David Parish site in Willow Grove and its high school program currently located in Wyncote, Montgomery County; St. Lucy School for Children with Visual Impairments in Philadelphia’s Juniata Park section; St. Katherine School’s main campus in Wynnewood and its high school program in Radnor.
Heeney also coordinates special education services in archdiocesan high schools throughout the five-county region.
The information night will also provide interested families the chance to meet the principals of the three schools virtually and to learn how they meet the needs of students with sensory impairments, physical disabilities and cognitive impairments as well as those on the autism spectrum within the context of Catholic values.
Participating in the program will be Katie Bier, principal of Our Lady of Confidence School; Sister Lisa Lettiere, I.H.M., principal of St. Lucy School for Children with Visual Impairments; and Lauren Bell, principal of St. Katherine School.
The Our Lady of Confidence High School Program is moving to the campus of Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster as of the 2021-2022 academic year.
