The Austin ISD Special Education Parent Forum will provide parents, guardians and families of students receiving special education services in AISD the opportunity to:

• Learn about the special education goals and priorities for the 2016-2017 school year
• Meet special education administrative team and learn more about the AISD Special Education services for families
• Continue an open and supportive dialogue between parents and AISD Special Education Department
• Build strong relationships with students, families and community to increase trust and shared responsibility

The forum program will include:

• A general session during which Dr. Jean Bahney, Ed.D., Executive Director of Special Education, will present the departments goals and priorities
• “Conversation Circles” in Spanish and English moderated by select, mediation-skilled staff to allow participants to provide input
• Q & A for the participants

Time will be allotted for parents to meet 1:1 with Special Education Administration to address individual issues. Childcare provided.
