The Hamilton and Wenham Police Departments have worked to create an Autism-Disability Outreach program in what is now a “culture of awareness” in our district and beyond. This new program is in response to the varied needs of residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities and aims to provide a “total approach” to issues that these residents and police encounter through educationoutreach, and response. The main focus of the program is to provide a platform for those that don’t always have a voice. The goal of their outreach is to provide tools and resources which prepare for effective ways to ensure a safe, meaningful community. Officers receive training and education on ways to ensure positive, effective, and safe interactions between law enforcement and the Autism/IDD communities. They will also work with caregivers and those who have Autism/IDD on ways to ensure that they are safe in the community. They will incorporate the concerns and questions of those they interact with to develop dynamic curriculums and presentations. Representatives from the Hamilton Police Department will be with us to further explain the rollout of the program and answer any questions you may have. 

We additionally will hear an update on changes to district student services and 2022-2023 budget from Stacy Bucyk, Director of Student Services. The presentation will cover what the Student Services department requested for budget allocation and why. Stacy gave a complete overview of district services previously which can be found here if anyone is curious about the definition and detail of district programs.
