Parent Services provides information, workshops and support in order to promote effective parent participation in the education of children who are exceptional and/or have special needs. We support partnerships between schools  and parents to support student achievement.

Special Ed Connection® is a web-based resource that parents can use to gain an understanding of what special education is and how it works, as their child enters, progresses through and exits the world of special education requirements. From legal rights to practical application and from student referrals to IEPs, Special Ed Connection® explains specific procedures and provides real-world application strategies so parents can learn the complexities surrounding special education supports and services.
