The IEP Resource Fair

Take a look into Lakes’ Fair for People in IEP!

 Many kids at Lakes have an Individualized Education Plan, or IEP for short. The Resource Fair is for all of those students. Led by  teacher Becky Thornton, Peter Jacobson, Rita Skerl and Glora Brackston, it is an event for students to investigate opportunities they might have after High School. The Resource Fair is open to both Middle and High School, and any others who have been diagnosed with the recognized disabilities sponsored by the fair.  Families of these students can come to the Fair to engage with the Alferetta Transition Program. The Fair  focuses on introducing and helping IEP students lead their lives past High School to gain valuable workplace experience after graduation. The ATP serves students aged 18-21. Some Community Resources involved with the fair and will be there are:

  • Department of Disability Administration (DDA)
  • Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR)
  • And other Community Agencies: PAVE, PC2, Goodwill and various other Employment Vendors
  • Community Colleges
  • Special Olympics and Metro Parks

All of these Resources can be met face to face by your family to assist your students (or you!) in their future.  Not only all of this– but the fair as well provides pizza to attenders. All of this is being held November 7th from 5-7 PM at Lakes High School’s Cafeteria. Thank you to the Fair!
