Parent Involvement

Increasing parent participation for students with disabilities will increase student achievement. Technical assistance and training will be provided to assist districts with parent involvement. Efforts will be made to increase parent participation in regional and on-site training. As first point of contact for parents, an effective intake and referral system will be in place as part of the Child Find System.
