Family Connections: Meaningful Engagement in the Special Education Process
Hosted by Oswego City School District
Session 4: Understanding Diploma and Credential Options for Students with Disabilities
Thinking about what you want to do after high school is exciting. Preparation for that journey is key while you are still in school. Parents/guardians and students need to learn the requirements for graduation. A high school diploma is achieved through mastering state academic standards, passing required tests and courses and earning credits. In this training, we will explain the different requirements for the Regents and Local Diploma. We will also discuss how students can use their strengths to achieve a diploma through multiple pathways. We will explore the importance of career readiness skills and the credentials available. This training is sure to help you navigate which options are the best for your child.
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!
