The Great Schools in Wake Coalition will be holding back-to-school forums "to give parents the critical information they need to advocate for their students in the coming school year."
In a press release Tuesday, GSIW said the first forum will be held Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. at the YWCA of the Greater Triangle, 554 East Hargett Street, Raleigh. The focus of that forum will be student assignment, educational rights and legal rights.
In addition to the presentation, a free legal clinic will be held allowing parents to get answers on issues such as discipline and suspension issues.
The speakers will be retired Chuck Dulaney, former assistant superintendent for Growth and Planning; Jason Langberg, staff attorney for Advocates for Children’s Services; and Charlotte Turpin, past president of Wake NCAE and
current president of the Harriet B. Webster Task Force for Student Success.
