Navigating An IEP In These Uncertain Times: Listening To The Needs Of Parents
All are welcome to listen in and participate in the chat during the panel. An ASL interpreter will be provided.
The parents agree our academic support staff has been working very hard, and some things about distance learning have been working well. They would like more support and training to be provided to the teachers and recommend that presentations be kept simple because things like videos on the screen can be too distracting. There are concerns about our eventual return to in-person learning, when we’ll have to address learning gaps, mental health issues, and regression.
This was a very informative conversation. The parents gave specific advice and recommendations, which I will pass along to our District staff and also share with other parents. I so appreciate Apryl and our parent panel for taking time to share their experiences with us
Students Ask the Vice Mayor!
Thursday, September 10th, 4 – 4:30 PM Join our virtual event, where Livermore students get an opportunity to ask Vice Mayor Bob Woerner a question. It can be about anything. They can pitch an idea for the new downtown, ask what wish he would make if he had a magic wand, learn his surprising talent, or find out why he’s running for mayor. No question too big or small, too silly or too serious.
All students and parents are welcome to listen in and join the virtual chat with additional questions. This event will not recorded as the participants include minors.
Event Update: Thank you to the 11 students, ranging from 2nd grade to college, who came to our virtual event today to ask Vice Mayor Woerner a question! These students came prepared and asked great questions. Love our youth! 💜🧡
