  • Meet with our Special Education Supervisors!

    Posted by Kelly Burkholder on 4/10/2024 8:00:00 AM

    Does your child have an IEP, either for special and/or gifted learning needs? If so, you’re invited to a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. to learn more about Hempfield Partners for Exceptional Children (HPEC). Dr. Meredith Goodrich and Jen Zolenas, our Special Education Supervisors, will discuss ways for parents and staff to work together to improve parent-school communication and create a better understanding of student needs and educational services.

    HPEC is where you can network with parents and staff to share your concerns about your child’s performance in school, share strategies that have worked for you, or gain new strategies.

    This initial presentation will reintroduce HPEC and provide our plan for future events. We are here to answer your questions and encourage you to complete a brief survey to assist us with scheduling presenters and planning future sessions that meet your needs.

    Can’t make it? A link to the recorded session will be provided for you to view at your convenience.
