One year of program evaluation data from the Wisconsin Special Education Mediation Systems Facilitated IEP Pilot Project will be shared by WI Dept. of Public Instruction staff (invited). Staff from WI FACETS and Great Lakes Inter-tribal Council Parent Training and Information Centers will discuss their perspectives. Topics to be covered include: parent involvement in a broad stakeholder-designed system, impact on parents of a neutral intake process and external facilitation, parent-educator stakeholder awareness, helping parents understand when to request a FIEP or mediation, preparing and supporting parents for a FIEP, and barriers to attracting culturally diverse parents to the FIEP process. This will be an interactive presentation with activities and opportunity for the audience to share ideas.
