Victoria High, Central Middle and Sir James Douglas school PACs are extremely pleased to announce we have partnered with the Greater Victoria School District and BCCPAC, to host the upcoming event, Special Education Parent Network Day , happening right here in Victoria !

For more information and online registration, visit: www.specialedparentnetwork.myevent.com
 

To register other ways (including subsidies, please email specedparents@yahoo.ca or call Ann at 250-380-0596)
 

The day will include sessions on advocacy, IEPs, Face It (social program/autism), anxiety, transitions, and much, much more. Please visit www.specialedparentnetwork.myevent.com for workshop descriptions, presenter information and ‘Day at a Glance’ updates. Parents, staff, families and community members from other districts are welcome to attend this event as well. Space is limited, however, so in order to reserve your spot, it is advisable to register as soon as possible!
We appreciate your help in reaching as many parents and families of children with special needs (whether designated or not) possible to let them know about this day. How can you help? Both the event poster and paper registration form should be attached to this email (email or call, if not). If you could print out a few copies and distribute them to those who may not be on your email grids that would be great. Other ways you can help spread the word is to put up posters in your schools, libraries, bulletin boards, store windows and anywhere else you can think of.   More ideas? Call friends, organizations and keep forwarding this email!
 
Special Education Parent Network days are a pilot initiative of the BCCPAC Special Education Committee (SEC), connecting with and supporting parents and families of students with special needs, promoting parent engagement, education and advocacy. Victoria is the third event (other days have happened in New Westminster and Nanaimo). The vision is that if successful, BCCPAC will help make it possible for at least one Special Education Parent Network day to happen in every school district in BC over the next two years!     http://www.bccpac.bc.ca/
