Upcoming Events for Parents
December 2nd EC Parent Night cancelled:
Due to the cancellation of schools today and the forecast of continuing snow throughout the day and evening, we must cancel our EC Parent Night that was re-scheduled for this evening. We are working with ECAC to reschedule this event for sometime in the spring. Be safe!
Welcome to the Parent Page of our WCS Exceptional Children Department Webpage !
We hope this page becomes your portal for all relevant and important information that you will need throughout the year. Our goal is help you to participate in not only your child's educational program at their school but also to be an active participant in our EC Department as whole. This page includes the following:
- Notices about upcoming EC Parent Advisory Council meetings and parent trainings;
- A section of important procedural information for parents
- A list of various parent resources covering many areas of disabilities
- A calendar of important upcoming school and district events
One of our goals is to continually to strive to develop and strengthen our relationships and our collaborative efforts with our parents and community members. Please let us know how we can help you with meeting the needs of your child and with enhancing your involvement with our program. If you have any questions, please contact the EC Department at 828-264-7190
