"What A Great IDEA!"
Oconee County School's first Weeknight Workshop of the semester is coming up! This parent training opportunity will be on Monday, August 24, at 6:30 pm, at Oconee Veterans Park's community meeting room. "What A Great IDEA!" presented by Parent to Parent of Georgia, will give parents an overview of the special education process and the basics of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the federal law governing special education. Parents will learn about referring a student for evaluation, what to expect when developing an Individual Education Plan (IEP), and how to collaborate in a positive way with teachers and school administrators for the benefit of their student. Great information for families new to special education, as well as seasoned pros - please join us!
