Ed Advocacy; Organize your Child's Education Records

Bring your child's educational records and hear ideas about how to organize them!

If you wish, bring a food item to share.  Coffee and Tea will be provided. 

Stay for an open peer support group, ask questions, meet other parents in our community! 

If you don't have all of your child's educational records, know that you can make a written request to your school district and they must provide them to you within five business days. If the school year has ended in your district, send your request to your school district office for response.
