KHS held their graduation ceremony at the Chaifetz Arena on Saturday, May 14th. Congrats to all our seniors! Below is a small sample of some of our proud graduates.

Family Leadership Institute hosted by PEDA

The highly successful SSD Parent Leadership Institute that has had more than 280 participants since 2007 is once again being offered under a new name of Family Leadership Institute (FLI).

The Institute will be Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8:30pm at SSD Central Office: October 12, 19, 26 and November 2.

If you are a parent or family member who makes the educational decisions for a child with a disability, investing the time to attend these four Wednesday evening sessions will provide:

VISION: for the future of your child.

KNOWLEDGE: to help effectively participate in your child's education.

LEADERSHIP SKILLS: to improve the educational climate for all children.

ACCESS: to new resources, friends, and experts to help you on your journey.
