Family Connections: Meaningful Engagement in the Special Education Process
Hosted by Oswego City School District
Session 2: Continuum of Services and the Least Restrictive Environment
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) stipulates that school-age children with disabilities be educated in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). This means that, to the extent possible, they will be educated with their non-disabled peers, and school systems will provide additional supports and modifications to make this happen. In this training we will explore the school-age continuum of services for students with disabilities.
All parents, guardians 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. Oswego City Schools is pleased to host this five-part Family Engagement Series present 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!
