Ward 6 Special Education Workshop Flyer

The Office of the Student Advocate is committed to making the public education more accessible by boosting parent engagement and increasing access to resources and supports for families.

Join us for our Special Education Workshop series in Ward 6 cohosted by DC Councilmember Charles Allen, Joe Weedon, Ward 6 State Board of Education Representative and Capitol Hill Public School Parent Organization.

Whether you feel your student needs special education services or you have questions/concerns about existing services, come learn what supports are available. This session will answer your questions about navigating special education at a public charter or traditional public school and provide additional information about you and your student’s rights. Not only will you be able to gather information and resources, but you will also have the opportunity to connect with special education experts throughout the District regarding your student’s specific needs.
