NewtonPAC Meeting on Basic Rights in Special Education, Tue., Mar. 11 at 7:30PM

Please join us for the next meeting of the Newton Parent Advisory Council for Special Education (NewtonPAC), for a presentation on Basic Rights in Special Education, presented by Clare Vann of the Federation for Children with Special Needs (FCSN). This workshop provides families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Massachusetts Special Education Law and No Child Left Behind (NCLB). It is designed to help parents learn how to be effective partners with their child’s school to decide the child’s eligibility for special education, and to plan, make decisions and monitor their child’s progress in school.

The workshop will take place on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 7:30PM, with light refreshments and networking beginning at 7:15PM, in Room 210 at the Education Center, 100 Walnut Street. Any questions, please email Eileen Sandberg.
