Parent and Community Engagement - Hawkins County Schools

The first Parent and Community Engagement sessions with our partners, STEP (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents), TN began in East TN.

Hosted by Hawkins County Schools, East TN Special Education Interventionist Rob Taylor and STEP - TN Executive Director Karen Harrison partnered to host morning and evening sessions for small but highly-engaged groups of parents of exceptional students and invested community members. Participants discussed how to increase inclusive opportunities for students with disabilities, practical strategies for increasing student engagement through different approaches to instruction, and user-friendly methods for parents to communicate their student’s strengths, needs, and learning styles to teachers and support staff. See event flyer.

Feedback for these sessions was overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to providing additional sessions upon district request!  Contact your regional SPDG Interventionist for more information.
