*Dear BUSD Families of Students with Disabilities or Special Needs:


  * Is your child struggling at school and you don’t know what to do?
  * Do you really feel confident that you are navigating well through
    the special education process?
  * Do you have questions and want some expert advice?
  * Do you want to meet people who can offer you direct support?
  * Are you well learned about the process and able to provide
    information to others?
  * Would Your Middle or High School Student Benefit from an Empowerment

If you answered yes to any of these questions, *SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 2015* 
has been designed with *You and Your Family In Mind*.  The Office of 
Family Engagement, Concerned Parents, and Parents of Children of African 
Descent are hosting a Parent Empowerment Summit for all BUSD Families of 
Students with Disabilities. Come and learn from the experts as there 
will be presentations from DREDF, the Disability Rights Education and 
Defense Fund, the Family Resource Network, and BUSD Parents. The day 
will also feature a separate Empowerment Workshop for Middle and High 
School Students from the CAL Berkeley Eye To Eye program, a Parent 
Toolkit, and free childcare by trained professionals for elementary 
school students.

We’re starting at *9:30 am and going until 3pm* to make the day as 
productive as possible. Lunch will also be provided. Because the demand 
is great and space is limited, *please rsvp* with the number of adult 
and student participants *by texting* 925-238-5239 <tel:925-238-5239> no
