 Message from the Executive Director -


My name is Claudia Weaver Henrickson, and I am the Executive Director of Special Education for the Green Bay Area Public School District. I have been in education for 26 years, and have a strong belief that ALL students can achieve, even if they achieve at different rates and in different ways.


I am here to serve our students; therefore I welcome input from each and every one of you. I look forward to moving our students with disabilities to levels of achievement beyond all expectations.
