Training for Parent Members of CSE
As many of you know, there have been changes in the mandated members in a CSE meetings per NYS regulations. In the past, school districts were mandated to have a parent member sit in on CSE meetings. This parent was someone who lives in the district and has a child with a disability who could provide support for a parent who's child was being discussed at CSE. A few years ago, the regulations changed and a parent member is no longer required.
This being said, parents can choose to ask for a parent member to join a meeting. Due to many more of our parents working or families who's students have now graduated, we have very few folks in district who are parent members. Syracuse University Parent Assistance Center (SUPAC) is offering a free training for any parent who may want to become a parent member. They are offering this training on November 29 for free. If anyone is interested, please let me know as I will need to register you. Here are the details:
