New director takes reins at special services

Follow Daily Journal:

A local agency that provides special education programs to area students has a new leader.

Angie Balsley, who has been the assistant director of Special Services Johnson County for the last two years, was named the program’s executive director on July 1. She replaces Pam Wright, who was the executive director for 13 years before retiring, according to a news release.

Special services works with eight school districts, including Center Grove, Clark-Pleasant, Edinburgh, Franklin, Greenwood and Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools, to create programs and provide services to special education students.

As assistant director, Balsley supervised speech pathologists and helped oversee the special education programs at Edinburgh and Flat Rock-Hawcreek schools, which is in Hope. She also trained under Wright to become the agency’s new executive director. Before working in Johnson County, Balsley was the director of special services for Bremen schools in northern Indiana, the news release said.

Now, Balsley wants to start meeting and working with local superintendents, special education directors and residents so she can learn about the specific needs and goals of Johnson County’s school districts, the news release said.

“I look forward to continuing to work hard serving children with special needs and their families while supporting educators and our member districts,” Balsley said in the news release.
