Only 2 Parent Trainings Remain for this School Year!

RtI & Section 504
Parenting is one of those jobs that doesn’t come with an instruction manual, but we are here to help educate you! In order for parents to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to work together as partners with our educators, parents must have the information to empower them. This training will provide parents and community members with information about what promotes student success through the RtI and Section 504 process. Please join us to learn how both of these services can help qualifying students receive support to help them reach success in their areas of need.
