Dear Ms. Kearny

After speaking with Ms. Mary Gray of your office, my husband and I decided to put together some material concerning our son, Mark A. Hartmann, as it will affect planning of his education beginning in the fall of 1993 in Loudoun County. Enclosed as attachments 'A' through 'L' are various documents prepared by Mark's current education team here in Illinois. We have also included a video tape of Mark primarily taken in the school setting. It is our hope that these items will be helpful to you in preparing for his 1993-94 school year.

By way of background, my husband is being transferred to Virginia during July 1993. We will likely be moving to Loudoun County, since that is where our realtor is concentrating the search for a residence. Given these circumstances, my husband and I would like to meet with you and your staff as appropriate in the near future. Our goal is to begin the process to make arrangements with you for the continuation of Mark's current educational program.

After you have read the enclosed material, and surveyed the video tape, please contact me at the telephone number provided below to coordinate a date and time to meet with you and with appropriate staff members to discuss our son and the continuation of his education in Loudoun County. Since we have to make arrangements for respite care to travel to Virginia to meet with you, please call me as soon as possible to set the earliest possible date for a meeting.

Please let us know any additional information you may require prior to our initial discussions. Thank you in advance for your consideration and cooperation in this matter.
