On September 17, the North Hampton Family-School Connection held its first formal meeting for parents of children in special education. Assistant Principal Richard Boardman presented a “Who’s Who in Special Education” for North Hampton parents. A slide show highlighting the photos and job titles of special education staff at each grade level was presented, and a number of parents voiced their appreciation for the ability to put faces to names they had been hearing!
Mr. Boardman also presented a draft Special Education Handbook being developed by the district for families.The handbook is being developed as an additional tool and resource for families in the special education world. What better way to get additional ideas and ensure that the handbook would be useful to parents? Ask parents! Attendees were asked to break into smaller groups to review and provide feedback for the final version.
