The Burnaby DPAC, in conjunction with BCCPAC, is hosting a Focus Group on Post-Secondary Resources and Planning on Tuesday, March 28 at 7pm. If you are interested in providing input to the Ministry of Advanced Education on the resources and tools that might be helpful to parents, please consider attending. Further information and registration are available here.
The BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) has published a guide for parents on Individual Education Plans for students with special needs:
“Many parents are not sure what to expect at an Individual Education Plan (IEP) meeting. When they meet school staff on behalf of their child, they may feel vulnerable or even frightened. Often, they don’t know what to do and are not clear about their role in the process. In this guide, our focus is to help you understand how an IEP meeting works and how you and your child, working together with the school, can get the most out of this process for the benefit of your child.” – BCCPAC
