Northshore School District to host information night for parents

The Northshore School District is joining together with Northshore's Special Education Parent/Professional Advisory Council (SEPAC) to discuss a new program with parents on Feb. 26.

The Individual Education Program (IEP) is designed for special needs students. An IEP defines the individualized objectives of a child who has been found with a disability, as defined by federal regulations. The IEP is intended to help children reach educational goals more easily and is tailored to the individual student's needs as identified by the IEP evaluation process.

Presenters include Becky Anderson, assistant superintendent special services; Shannon Hitch, secondary special education director; Kim Durkin, elementary special education director; Adra Davy, teacher on special assignment; and Kathryn Williams, SEPAC.

Cost is free and there will be a prize drawing for attendees. Prizes include a therapy ball, t-stool or weight belt.

The event is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the NSD Administrative Center, located at 3330 Monte Villa Parkway in Bothell.
