    SPECIAL POPULATIONS

    • The Office of Special Populations will be presenting a Parent Lab series, with the goal to establish a system-wide approach to equip parents with knowledge, tools, and resources to foster high levels of academic engagement and success. 

      Senior Managers and Specialists will host focused individualized "Parent Labs" by disability area or special population. The 30-minute sessions will be informative and interactive; they are designed to inform and empower our families as we approach the start of school. While the sessions are designed for parents, new teachers, and other staff stakeholders are invited to join!
