Key Points to Share about ED’s Reopening Schools

In April 2021, the U.S. Department of Education published 2 handbooks to help schools reopen safely. To give Parent Centers, families, and others quick access to the valuable information in these volumes, CPIR is pleased to develop and share with you an infographic summary of each volume. While there is no substitute from reading the actual volumes in their entirety, these infographics will give you a taste of the kind of detailed guidance you'll find in the full publications. Access the infographics as well as ED's handbooks here.

Stone Soup Group is the Alaska Parent Training and Information Center.

Their services are available statewide and most programs and services are no cost to families. When it comes to the world of special education services, families tend to get buried in mountains of paperwork. But sometimes it helps to see the forms so you know what to collect; or see a sample letter to guide you in what information needs to passed along. Stone Soup Group has created Forms, Tipsheets, Templates & Videos for families. Check them out!
