Children with Special Needs Fund (CSN Fund)
The CSN Fund supports families that have children with special health care needs by providing full or partial funding for certain equipment that help to improve the child’s quality of life. The CSN Fund was created 69 years ago with a bequest from Dr. James T. Pardee, co-founder of Dow Chemical. Since then thousands of families have received financial assistance to purchase equipment they need for their children when no other help was available. The CSN Fund is funded by solely donations. There are no tax dollars involved.

What is the Parent Advisory Committee?
Michigan law requires that each Intermediate School District (ISD) have a special education Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). This committee consists of a parent representative from each of the twelve local school districts and the public school academies in Ingham County.
The committee’s role is advisory to the Intermediate School District special education administration and parent representatives serve as liaisons between other parents they represent and the local special education administrator in their resident district. The PAC meets monthly at the Ingham ISD. Meetings are open to all parents and other persons interested in special education within Ingham County.
Members of the Ingham ISD Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) are parents of students with disabilities. Their top priority is to inform and communicate with other parents of students with disabilities in their district or academy. Contact your PAC representative if you have questions or concerns about special education programs, services and/or student issues in your district, academy or school.
