We have a fantastic program for you and for your child's teachers. Please invite them, and your friends! "Special Education Students are General Education Students First!" But when the rubber hits the road, with crowded classrooms, funding shortages, limited opportunities for teacher professional development, and parental questions about how to start a conversation with teachers, are our children's learning needs fully being met alongside their typically developing peers?
Dr. Walker, who works with school districts throughout the area on special education issues, offers practical, timely, cost-effective information for parents and teachers in differentiating instruction for the spectrum of student learning needs in general education classrooms. Q&A will follow.
Also scheduled: Updates on state legislation issues of interest to the special education community, as well as an SPS District update on its progress in reshaping the Special Education department.
The meeting will also provide you with an opportunity to renew your PTSA membership. Last year's membership expired at the end of October. Bring cash or a check. General membership fees are $14 and educator memberships are $10. Membership keeps our PTSA robust and enables our PTSA leaders to advocate for your interests.
