    Recognizing that parents, families, and caregivers of special needs students have unique concerns and needs, the Special Services Family and Community Engagement department provides training, workshops and resources to empower parents/guardians to advocate for their students with special education needs.

    Special Services Family and Community Engagement 

    The 鶹Special Services Department created the Family and Community Engagement department to strengthen communication with parents and families of special needs students ages 3 to 21 who face significant challenges and need additional support.

    The center is a point of access for parents with students in special education who need resources to:

    • Resolve concerns regarding special education services and become involved in their child’s education
    • Become informed about educational processes and effective parenting
    • Obtain services in the community and beyond 
    • Plan transitions for the special needs student

    The department is here to assist families in developing the communication, collaboration, and trust necessary to achieve positive outcomes for their students.


    The 鶹Special Services Department has developed a parent survey that will provide valuable feedback to help us improve the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) process. 

    The survey will be given to parents at the close of each ARD meeting or they can also download it here.
