The Tewksbury Public Schools’ Student Services and Special Education Department and the Tewksbury Special Education Parent Advisory Council (TSEPAC) are offering a Basic Rights Workshop for all parents, guardians and interested parties.  The workshop will be held on October 23, 2015 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Tewksbury Memorial High School, Room LG2.

This workshop provides families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Massachusetts Special Education Law and No Child Left Behind (NCLB).  It is designed to help parents learn how to be effective partners with the school, to decide the child’s eligibility for special education, to plan, make decisions and to monitor the educational progress of their child.

We invite all interested parties to join us for this informative workshop.
