Free Talk in Wellesley Thursday, May21st: Writing Effective IEPs and the Common Core

From the Wellesley PAC

May 15, 2015

Education chiefs and governors in 48 states came together to develop the Common Core, a set of college- and career-ready standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in ELA and mathematics. The Common Core standards are designed so students are career and college ready at graduation.

What is it we really want an individual student to know and be able to do? With the implementation of the Common Core, parents can easily become confused. How can we know at the end of a school year that the child has made the progress we targeted?

This workshop will provide a framework for understanding how various parts of the IEP fit together, and will focus on the development of meaningful and measurable IEP goals and objectives.

When:   7:00 – 8:30pm Thursday, May 21, 2015

Where: Wellesley Middle School Library
                  50 Kingsbury Street, Wellesley, MA 02481

This program is free and open to the public. There will be a short meet and greet prior to the start of the meeting. No RSVP required!
