PACER Center workshop will help parents participate in the decision-making process

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “Get a Seat at the Table: Learn How to Participate in the Decision-Making Process,” a free workshop for parents of young children up to age five with disabilities. It will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 1 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington.

This workshop is also available online via Livestream.

A stakeholder is a person who has an interest in something, and is impacted by or cares about how it turns out. This workshop helps prepare parents of young children up to age five to participate as stakeholder groups in their school district, or at the county, regional, or state level.

Participants will learn about opportunities for involvement, review the skills needed to participate, and discuss the data used to make decisions. They will also:

  • Learn about the data being collected on your child and family
  • Learn about how that data is being used at the state and local level
  • Learn about how to be an active participant in a stakeholder group

The workshop is sponsored by PACER’s Family Information and Resources Project. Funding for this workshop is made possible under a contract from the Minnesota Department of Education. The source of the funds is federal awards, Special Education Part B.
