What is the Parent Resource Center?


 

The PWCS' Office of Special Education Parent Resource Center (PRC)'s mission is to assist parents and families of children with disabilities to become active participants in their child's education. The PRC provides information and supports parents regarding the special education process in Prince William County.

In operation since November of 1992, the center has provided support, training, resources, and information to parents and teachers.
It's goal is to promote a positive relationship between parents and educators.

The Center is staffed by both a Parent Coordinator (parent of a child with special needs) and an Administrative Coordinator (who was a special education educator), who are
trained to listen and refer parents to appropriate resources in the Division and in the community. However, the coordinators may not serve as advocates for parents in School Intervention, IEP, or Eligibility meetings or attend a Central Office Review, State Mediation, or Due Process Hearing.
