Please join us for the EC Transition Fair

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Exceptional Children Department will sponsor the 2019 Transition Fair on Thursday, April 11, from 5:30-8 p.m. at Carrboro High School.

This is an opportunity for families with children who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) to meet representatives from a variety of area resources and attend panel discussions on relevant topics such as Post Secondary Education Options, Vocational Rehabilitation Service, and guardianship.

Parent Volunteers Needed

SNAC was created and is sustained by parent volunteers. If you are interested in becoming more involved with SNAC, there are leadership positions as well as parent representative positions open for this school year and for the 19/20 school year. 

The EC  Vocational Education Working Group: is looking to repopulate committee members and expand the scope of work to include all Middle and High School EC students in all core courses of study:  Future Ready, Future Ready- OCS, and Adapted Curriculum. As you probably know, when a student turns 14 years old a formal Transition Plan is developed and becomes a working document within the IEP process.  It gradually assumes priority over the IEP goals as you get closer to exiting high school.  It's never too early to start to learn about the transition choices and how they can impact your student before you exit high school.  Our working group has proudly worked with the district for over five years and has helped create the former PATHSS program - Project Achieve for Transitioning High School Students which is now under the Triangle Ready Agency Collaborative (TRAC)  program.  Both of these programs currently serve OCS and AC students.  If you are interested in working on this transitions committee please contact:  Adela Van Name, 

SNAC Parent Representatives:

We are in need of SNAC Parent Representatives at a number of elementary schools. Ideally, we would like to have two SNAC Representatives at each school. The following schools currently do not have any SNAC Reps for the upcoming school year: Estes Hills Elementary and Glenwood Elementary. 

The following schools currently have one SNAC Rep for the upcoming school year: Carrboro Elementary, Ephesus Elementary, Frank Porter Graham, Culbreth Middle, McDougle Middle. 

Being a parent rep is a wonderful way to get involved with your child's school and the CHCCS Exceptional Children's Program. It is not a huge time commitment
