Those in the attendance had the opportunity to talk with a number of representatives from public agencies and district specialists about services for students with disabilities.
It’s always exciting to see all of our parents and their students come out and meet with all of the vendors and resources that donate their time, materials and expertise at our Tomorrow Program,” said Dr. April Fox, director of student support services. “I think it’s important to provide access to those resources to our parents of students with disabilities.”
