FAMILY-CENTERED APPROACH

PARENT RESOURCES

Parents of Gateway Students have formed the Parents' Association (PA) to address parent concerns, help raise funds for the school and plan events that support the family-centered education services at Gateway School.

Parent support groups are offered by the school’s social worker and information is provided to parents about the resources available within the school and the community. Periodic workshops are also presented to parents and the community by the staff of the Gateway School and The Hearing and Speech Agency.

PARENT PARTICIPATION

Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the development of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) and all other aspects of their child's educational program. A case manager is assigned to your child and team meetings are conducted for your child as the need arises. Meetings with parents and/or representatives involved with the child from outside agencies are also scheduled as needed. Pre-IEP conferences are coordinated with parents prior to the annual review of the IEP to ensure parental involvement in the IEP process.

OPEN DOOR POLICY

Gateway's open-door observation policy promotes communication with families and community professionals.
