Parents and Families

Parent Events and Resources

Providing technical assistance and support to families of children and youth with disabilities is an essential element of the work of SST8. Research has shown when families are involved in their child's education, students are more successful. SST8 offers educational opportunities throughout the school year for families so they can become active participants in their child's educational career.

Further information on disabilities, special education laws/regulations and other issues of concern to parents are always available by contacting our staff.
