District-Wide Program Series
*Parents/guardians of students whose IEP team has determined that a majority of their needs are best met in a special education setting/classroom as their least restrictive environment.
September 28 - October 28, 2020
Mondays from 12 to 1 p.m., and Wednesdays from 6 to 7 p.m.

These workshops are designed for parents of students receiving Special Education Services in the District-Wide Program. District-Wide Program is composed of more restrictive classrooms for students of varying disability categories for which IEP teams have determined that the student requires more support in the special education setting. If your student is served primarily in the general education inclusion setting, the parent workshops in the Inclusion Series (see below) may be more appropriate. Sessions will be led by Senior Coordinators and Teacher Specialists. See list of workshops and times.
