The Pasadena Unified School District’s (PUSD) Parent University invites families to a free seminar for families called “Special Education 101: Navigating the Special Education System” Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015, at 5:30 p.m. at the McKinley School Library, located at 225 S. Oak Knoll Ave., Pasadena.

All families are welcome to learn how they can partner with schools to support their children’s success whether their child has a disability or shares a classroom with children who do. Parents will learn how the diversity of children in classrooms enriches the everyday learning experiences of the children, families, teachers and staff of PUSD schools.

Dec. 2 is National Special Education Day and marks the anniversary of the signing of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which was signed into law by President Gerald Ford in 1975.

Spanish translation and child care for school-age children will be available

PUSD’s Parent University builds families’ access to knowledge about what children are learning; the workings of the school system; how to provide educational support to their children; and how to partner with teachers and schools to advocate for their children’s educational needs.
