Return to Learn Meetings for Parents/Guardians of Students with IEPs

Parents/Guardians of students with special needs (IEPs) are invited to one of two meetings through Google Meets, on August 3rd, to discuss what learning will look like for your child in the upcoming year, and what support will be available - both in-person and virtually. In addition, there will be a Q & A session at the end.  For those families unable to participate, the District will post an FAQ specific to special education following the sessions on the Return to Learn page on our websites (https://www.chathamschools.org/return-to-learn)

The first meeting will be at 9 a.m., and the second at 6 p.m. Below is the link needed to access the meeting.  Each session will allow up to 250 participants. 

In an effort to ensure that staff are able answer as many of your questions as possible, we ask that all questions be submitted by August 2nd. Questions may be submitted one of two ways: email Heidi Hopkins (hhopkins@bcsd5.org) or via this form (BCSD 5 Special Education Update - Ask Us Anything Question Submission Form).   Due to the expected high volume of participation, we ask that all microphones be muted and all questions be submitted prior or asked via the chat box during the meeting. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact either Jen Farnsworth (jfarnsworth@bcsd5.org) or Alyssa Myren (amyren@bcsd5.org) with any questions you may have.  BCSD Special Education Update - Ask Us Anything!
