SPED Community Outreach Meetings

Disability Rights Louisiana (DRLA) will be providing three Community Outreach Events this summer to get the community's feedback on special education practices in the Natchitoches Parish School District.

This is your chance to have input on improvements for special education for the Natchitoches Parish School Board! Join us at the dates below to hear from DRLA's Attorney Shannon Barnes as we get your input on special education practices for the Natchitoches Parish school system.

Community Outreach Meeting Dates:

  • 1st Meeting: Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 3:00pm
  • 2nd Meeting: Tuesday, July 19, 2022: Time TBD
  • 3rd Meeting: Will be scheduled at a later date

The first meeting is a community outreach event to gain input from parents and community stakeholders on Professional Development (PD) topic recommendations. The main in-service will take place on July 19th and is a training for NPSB educators on various special education topics. The third meeting is a post-meeting follow up for community members.

All three meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Natchitoches Parish School Board board room. Each meeting will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube for those who are unable to physically attend.
