Special Education Community Outreach Meetings for Natchitoches Parish Schools

Disability Rights Louisiana (DRLA) will be providing three community outreach events this summer to gain insight and feedback on special education practices in the Natchitoches Parish School District.

This is the public’s chance to have input on improvements for special education for the Natchitoches Parish School Board. DRLA’s Attorney, Shannon Barnes, along with NPSB officials, will be in attendance to hear what community members have to say on special education practices for the Natchitoches Parish school system.

The scheduled meetings are outlined below:

Thursday, June 30 at 3 p.m.

Tuesday, July 19: time TBD

The third and final meeting will be scheduled at a later date

The first meeting is a community outreach event to gain input from parents and community stakeholders on Professional Development (PD) topic recommendations. The main in-service will take place on July 19th and is a training for NPSB educators on various special education topics. The third meeting is a post-meeting follow up for community members.

All three meetings are open to the public and will be held in the NPSB board room.
