SPUSD's Special Education Department Hosts Their First In-Person Parent Workshop


On April 1st, the SPUSD Special Education Department hosted their first ever in-person parent workshop! The workshop was designed and facilitated by one of our outstanding teachers, Mrs. Mabel Valenzuela. Mrs. Valenzuela focused this hands-on workshop on helping parents understand the most effective methods for supporting reading success for their children at home. Two sessions were offered, one in English and one in Spanish.

Parents were invited to attend with their student or students, and were guided through activities while working collaboratively with one another. Each family left the workshop with a binder full of materials, activities, assessments, and hands-on resources to work with at home. All materials and the presentation were available in both English and Spanish. A series of additional parent and family workshops are being scheduled for the near future.
