    Susan Philips will have some follow-up coverage on the School District later today, since this afternoon marks the first School Reform Commission meeting after the recent Marting Luther King High School charter saga. She’ll also be at tonight’s First District City Council debate.

    How do parents of special needs children prepare for the summer? Learning loss is even more common in children with special needs, so many parents seek learning-based programs. Maiken Scott will take a look at what some local parents are doing this summer.
