Do you have a child receiving Special Education services in Tennessee?

We would love to have you join us in a community conversation to help us better serve you and your child. The Arc of Tennessee is partnering with the State Department of Education to host community conversations across the state to open a dialogue between families and schools and see how we can continue to work together and strengthen family engagement in special education.

The Department of Education has been giving out surveys to families for years, but the response rate has been pretty low. We’re hoping to collect even more feedback from families with children receiving services from birth all the way to age 22 so that we can use that data to strengthen family engagement. Our number one goal is to be sure that we are making it as easy as possible for families to feel welcomed and involved in their child’s education with the end goal being the best possible outcome for the child.

If you live in Middle Tennessee, please join us on March 5th for our very first Community Conversation! We will meet at the West Police Precinct at 5500 Charlotte Pike from 6:45-8:15pm and refreshments will be provided. If you can’t join us in person, feel free to chime in on our Facebook page! We will broadcast the event LIVE and you’ll have an opportunity to share your thoughts even if you can’t attend the event.
