Northborough/Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council is holding a program to educate parents and guardians of special education students about their rights.
Basic Rights in Special Education will take place at the Northborough Public Library (34 Main Street) on Tuesday, October 8, from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
Presented by Elaine Rabbitt from the Federation for Children with Special Needs, the Basic Rights workshop provides families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities under:
- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA),
- Massachusetts Special Education Law and,
- No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
This presentation is designed to help parents/guardians learn to be effective partners with their child’s school to decide their child’s eligibility for special education, and to plan, make decisions and monitor their child’s progress in school.
This event is open to the public with advance registration requested.
