Session 1: Establishing and Maintaining Effective Partnerships with Your Child’s School
Good communication and partnerships with your child’s school team is an important component to creating a successful educational experience for students with disabilities. This training will cover essential elements of establishing and maintaining these relationships including: parent’s awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities as a member of the CSE team, the roles and responsibilities of the school professionals, utilization of effective communication strategies, and working together to resolve disagreements. SUPAC provides strategies, examples, and materials that will assist parents in their efforts to build relationships with school districts.
ABOUT THIS SERIES: All parents and family members can and should have meaningful participation in their children’s education, especially when the child receives special education supports and services. Effectively communicating and collaborating with the school team is essential to improved outcomes for students with disabilities. SCSD is pleased to host this six-part Family Engagement Series presented by SUPAC-Syracuse University Parent Assistance Center. Each session will provide strategies and information to build upon the next in helping families to navigate and participate in the Special Education Process for their children!
