Parent Teacher Resource Center

VA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION-FAMILY INVOLVEMENT FLYER:
Please scroll to the forms section of this page to and click on the Family Involvement Month Flyer. The flyer was produced by the Virginia Department of Education. Governor McAuliffe has recognized November 2014 as Family Involvement in Education Month in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The flyer contains a list of Web site links to resources for families.

PURPOSE OF THE PARENT TEACHER RESOURCE CENTER:
The purpose of the Parent Teacher Resource Center is to provide support and information for families with children in special education. We also offer support for families with children in the Title 1 program. We can provide ideas and suggest resources that may help parents better understand the special education process. We also strive to help parents and guardians become more involved in their child's educational process by promoting cooperation between home, school, and the community. Stop in and visit on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday mornings, contact me by email, or call. At the Parent Resource Center we have an excellent lending library with books, videos, and magazines on a variety of parenting, homework, and special education topics. We can also do searches on the internet for you. Please let us know how we can help you!
 
HOURS OF OPERATION:
The Parent Resource Center is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from
8:30 am to 11:50 am during the school year.
 
PARENT, FAMILY, & COMMUNITY TRAINING SCHEDULE
The Parent Teacher resource Center has started the new school year with a new name and a great line up of presentations! All presentations will be from 4 to 5 PM at the Salem City Schools Administration Building on 510 South College Avenue. 
 
Should you be unable to attend a scheduled session, but would like to obtain information regarding the topic, please review the links at the bottom of the page. Presentations are posted typically within 1-week of the presentation. Moreover, you may contact Susan Young, Administrative Secretary, to request the information to be reviewed with you.
