Transition to High School Workshop Jan 14th

Parents of students with disabilities who will be transitioning to high school in the fall are invited to attend an informational workshop on January 14 at Rivers Elementary beginning at 6 p.m.

The workshop will be conducted by the Fayette County Public School System’s Exceptional Children’s Services department heads from each of the county’s five high schools. Discussion will include student involvement in the IEP (Individualized Education Program) meeting that is required at the eighth grade annual review, transition plan for high school and beyond, and an overview of curriculum and graduation rules. There will be a question and answer session at the end for general questions.

This workshop is a great opportunity to learn what is expected in high school. Parents are encouraged to bring their eighth graders with them since it will be a learning opportunity for the student as well.

The workshop is free, but advance reservations are required. To reserve a seat, contact Parent Mentor Allison Stevenson at or call 770-460-3911, ext. 239.
