Conway Christian exploring school for developmental disabilities

Posted: July 18, 2014 - 3:32pm

Conway Christian School and the Committee for Options in Education (COE) have begun conversations that could potentially lead to the establishment of a Conway based school for children with developmental and learning disabilities.

The COE is a recently organized group of parents and professionals that recognizes the need for additional options for these children beyond the preschool years.

“It is clear to Conway Christian that this is a very real need in our community and we, at this early stage of discussion, are simply expressing our interest in understanding how CCS might play a positive role in the lives of many local children and their families,” stated CCS President & CEO Richard W. Henley. “CCS has already taken significant steps within our school to be able to better assist some of our current students who face challenges, but these ongoing discussions could lead to something with far more wide-spread benefits.”

Committee for Options in Education leader, Susan Beasley, stated “We see a huge need for a new educational facility in Conway, and recognize that Conway Christian School may be able to facilitate this becoming a reality sooner rather than later. We are excited about the possibilities.”

Interested parties who would like to have input into this process may contact Dee Dee Cain cain@conwaycorp.net or Kirsten Kravitz at kirstenkravitz@gmail.com.
