School for Special Children
Board of Directors continues its work in spite of this pandemic!
We are a not-for-profit, government registered, charitable organization composed of a board of directors, members-at-large and many, many devoted and dedicated volunteers. We have been, and continue to be, responsible for maintaining and improving the school facilities, and providing special programs for the children and assistance to the teaching staff.
Although the school is currently closed in adherence to the government ordered shutdown, there is still much that is needed, both physically and emotionally.
During this time the board of directors is dedicated to making sure that 100% of all staff salaries and benefits are paid. We continue to be responsible for the infrastructure including all maintenance and repair of buildings and classrooms, as well as all utilities. Although we will suffer a loss of revenue as a result of COVID-19, we are committed to our mission and the support we provide to the children and their families. When school is in session, we not only provide all children much needed specialized education, but also with hot meals. Even with the school currently closed we hope to soon provide food assistance to those children and their families; assistance which is needed more now than ever.
We are proud of our fundraising events that we host throughout the year: the Annual Fashion Show/Silent Auction, Behind the Walls Home Tours, and Chapala Talent Show. While the future seems uncertain at this time, we are hopeful and plan to continue these and many more events in the coming months. So, in the meantime, and while you have some time on your hands, go through those closets and save those brand name items that you no longer wear and hold them for our Annual Fashion Show.
Lastly, a BIG THANK YOU for your continued support of our School and the Children.
