Family involvement is never more important in the Special Education Process
than during the Committee on Special Education (CSE) annual review time.
Please join SUPAC as we help you get prepared for the annual review
meeting. This three-part lunchtime series will focus on helping families
and students be engaged and empowered during the CSE meeting and beyond.
Part 1: Wednesday, February 10th
What is the Committee on Special Education (CSE) Annual Review Meeting?
The CSE is responsible for developing a child’s Individualized Education
Program (IEP). In this session you will learn the purpose of the CSE
meeting and how your involvement is crucial to the success of that meeting.
We will explore the role of all parties involved in the CSE Meeting and
share tips for effectively communicating with your child’s team.
Part 2: Wednesday, February 24th
A Walk through the Individualized Education Program (IEP)
The IEP is the cornerstone document of the special education process. It
serves as a road map for your child’s special education and related
services. It is important as a family member of a student with a disability
that we understand and help to develop our child’s IEP. In this webinar we
will explore each component of the IEP, including the child’s current level
of performance, strengths and needs, as well as goals. We will also offer
tips on how to actively participate in the development of your child’s IEP.
Part 3: Wednesday, March 9th
Involving the Student in the Special Education Process
An annual review is a Committee on Special Education (CSE) meeting to plan
for the next school year. Studies have shown that student involvement is
critical in the success of their Individualized Education Program (IEP).
This session will give family members, with children of all ages, tips and
resources to have their child involved in this process early on.
It is recommended that you participate in the whole series, but it is not
required. These sessions will be streamed live. You will receive
information on how to connect online once you have registered.
