TN- Technical Assistance Network

The Family Engagement in Special Education Project (FESPED), through The Arc Tennessee, has been working with the TN Department of Education on increasing family engagement in Special Education since 2018. When the TN-TAN Network was formed, our group was looped in as a support to the various contracted agencies to make sure their professional development and materials were always considered through the family lens when appropriate. We are also here to support schools and districts in the same way! Please click the link below to learn more about the resources we can provide to families in your district, or to reach out to us if you’d like us to work with you to create a parent support group in your area, put on a family engagement PD, or just talk to you about what we can do to help. Our services are free and meant to take work off your plate! We can help you better engage families to improve student outcomes and your APR Indicator 8 (Parental Involvement) scores!
