SUSD special education fair slated for Feb. 19

Posted

Special education students and their families are invited to a Feb. 19 fair from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Scottsdale Unified School District offices, 8500 E. Jackrabbit Road.

The fair will provide a chance to learn about the wide variety of community programs and services available to help students transition from high school into adulthood, according to a press release.

The fair features many organizations in one location so families, caregivers and students can learn about the options available to special education students to further their education, train for and enter the workforce and how they can access housing, public transportation and health services.

The fair focuses on career exploration, introduction to independent living, as well as social and life skill lessons.

“This event is all about helping our special education students become independent, successful members of society once they leave high school,” Margaret Rehberg, SUSD executive director of special education, said in a prepared statement.

“Each year, we bring together all of these services, community organizations and resources all in one place to help these students and their families start planning for that transition. It’s all part of ensuring that each individual student reaches his or her full potential.”

Attendees also can learn about SUSD’s SCORE program for young adults with differing abilities that enables them to remain in an educational environment past grade 12 to learn additional life and vocational skills.
