Ann Shepherd

Parent-Teacher Resource Center Coordinator

PURPOSE OF THE PARENT TEACHER RESOURCE CENTER:
The purpose of the Parent Teacher Resource Center is to provide support and information for families with children in special education. We also offer support for families with children in the Title 1 program. We can provide ideas and suggest resources that may help parents better understand the special education process. We also strive to help parents and guardians become more involved in their child’s educational process by promoting cooperation between home, school, and the community. Stop in and visit on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday mornings, contact me by email, or call. At the Parent Resource Center we have an excellent lending library with books, videos, and magazines on a variety of parenting, homework, and special education topics. We can also do searches on the internet for you. Please let us know how we can help you!
