What is the Parent Resource Center?
The Parent Resource Center in H.A.M.S exists to provide parents with information, promote positive partnerships between parents and educators, to support and meet their child’s learning needs. The needs include, but are not limited to, academic, social emotional, developmental and functional skills; H.A.M.S Parent Resource Center also works to inform and educate siblings, grandparents, and friends, about special education – what it means and how services are provided to children. We want families to have the tools they need to fully participate and collaborate with school staff during each step of the special education process – from the initial referral, to their role in the development of the individualized Education Program.
Open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
The goal for the center is for all H.A.M.S families to understand the important role they play in our student’s educational team. We encourage parental participation in the educational decision making process as we are committed to the belief that parents are more effective when they participate and are educated about the process. The partnership we can establish, will exemplify the effectiveness parents and staff will experience when working closely together and focusing on students’academic achievement.
Note: “Research indicates that one of the strongest indicators of a child’s success at school is parental involvement.”
