‘Cracking the Code of Special Education’ topic of next Community Support Network meeting

Eli Gallup will present, “Cracking the Code of Special Education” at the Nov. 5 Community Support Network Meeting. Gallup is the assistant superintendent-SELPA (Special Education Local Plan Area) for the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools.

Interested community members are invited to learn the alphabet soup code of IEP, FAPE, IDEA, and more. Attendees will get an overview of special education challenges and opportunities. Who are all the players? What are their roles, rights, and responsibilities? What helps things go well?

Practical tools and tips will be shared that can be applied to special ed circumstances, and life in general. The presentation will provide insight into an important part of our overall community fabric and will be geared toward a general audience.

The meeting will be from 3:30-5 p.m. on Wednesday in the Gene Albaugh Community Room at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City.

Meetings are open to the public and child care may be pre-arranged by calling Cindy Santa Cruz-Reed at CoRR at 530-273-9541, ext. 221. For more information, contact CSN Coordinator Susan Sanford at 530-913-0270 or csnncorg@gmail.com.
