• The Local Task Force for the Right to Education (LTF) serves parents in Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan and Tioga Counties.  We hope to be able to contribute insightful recommendations that will improve, strengthen and help expand services for students with special needs.  We provide resources, referrals, information and networking for and between our members and the community.  We desire to foster strong, solid working foundations between parents and their school district’s officials, so that everyone who is invested in the education of a student receiving special education services is able to function as a team to obtain the best possible education for the student.  Local events and resources are available on the Parent Support/Resources page of the BLaST IU 17 website – www.iu17.org .  Should you have any questions, please contact the Local Task Force at 570-323-8561.

    Our Mission Statement:  To support children and families in our community by providing leadership, information, training and encouragement.

    Meeting Dates and Times:  All meetings will be held at 6:00 pm.
