LCSD, SUPAC Reschedule Final Special Education Workshop
Monday, April 9, 2018 -
The Liverpool Central School District Special Education Department and the Syracuse University Parent Assistance Center (SUPAC) have rescheduled their final special education workshop of the year.
Tools for Parents: A Transition Focused Guide (AKA The Transition Tool Kit), will be held on Tuesday, May 8, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the District Office Board Room (195 Blackberry Road). This training session was developed by Central and Mid-State RSE-TASC Transition Specialists and SUPAC. A successful transition process is based on the student’s strengths, preferences and interests, and requires collaboration between the student, family, school district and community agencies. Transition planning and services are designed to prepare a student with a disability to achieve his or her post-secondary goals related to living, learning and earning within the community. Attendees will learn what is required by educational entities in planning and preparing for a student’s transition from high school to adult life. Parents will be given a comprehensive resource binder, which will include general information, regulation requirements and transition planning tools. Parents and other participants also will be given the opportunity to:
- Identify key actions that should take place during a young adult’s journey to adult life in order to be best prepared;
- Become familiar with various tools and assessments that will strengthen the transition process and assure preparatory activities are targeted and purposeful; and
- Give an overview of various community connections that should be established in order to assist in adult life.
All LCSD parents and staff are invited to attend. Registration is required. To register, visit the online registration Web site or register by phone at 315-443-4336 or toll free 877-824-9555. For more information regarding the workshop, contact the LCSD Special Education Office at 315-622-7185.
SUPAC is funded through a contract with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) Office of Special Education and seeks to empower parents to become meaningfully involved in their children’s education through school, family, and community partnerships. SUPAC is a project of the Center on Human Policy and is located on the Syracuse University campus.
