Program Title: Students with Special Needs Speaker Series

Program Description:

Once per quarter, guest speakers are invited to school to provide teachers with resources and support for helping students with special needs, differentiating instruction and understanding the pressures teenagers face.

Processes and Resources: Sharon Byrne, our Counseling Department Chair, asks teachers for suggestions and invites professionals from various educational fields. They come during an all-school free period, present for an hour and provide materials.

Finances: $1,000.00 for food for faculty, honorarium for speakers (which is usually donated back to the school)

Rewards: Information, resources and ideas for teachers to help struggling students

Time (When/Length): 4x / year, one hour

Location (Space): 5 th floor balcony (space that seats around 60)
