Webinar: Special Education Parent Advisory Groups in New Jersey l Guide to Developing and Conducting an Effective Group
The very teamwork and collaboration that are at the core of IDEA are also at the core of the Special Education Advisory Group process. Special Education Parent Advisory Groups- SEPAGs- engage parents, community leaders, and school district staff in collaborative teamwork to improve education, not just for those with disabilities, but for all children. SEPAGs insure that there is a forum for meaningful parent input to the local school district, with the opportunity for system-level change.
The key to any successful partnership is meaningful collaboration and an exchange of ideas. The guide was developed with this in mind and is intended to offer a road mapto help bring stakeholders together, suggest strategies to help stakeholders engage in dialogue, and offer best practices to help them work together to benefit the local community.
Webinar participants will:
- Learn the process used to develop the guide
- Become familiar with the guide and it’s use for parents and educators
