SECTION 2
ALASKA PARENT GUIDE

The Department of Education & Early Development began work on a re-write of a popular resource manual for parents. The Alaska Parent Guide for special education was written through a grant to PARENTS Inc. (Alaska’s former PTI) and Southeast Regional Resource Center (SERRC), in the 2000-2001 school year. The Alaska Parent Guide is a practical guide that provides basic information helpful to parents.

The Guide was field tested and was the focus of many community forums conducted by PARENTS Inc. in communities around the state. SERRC gathered the comments received by PARENTS Inc. Comments were taken and incorporated in the final revision of the Guide. The Guide was then translated into the three most common written languages in use in Alaska. The three translations are: Tagalog, Spanish, and Yupik.

The English version of the Alaska Parent Guide is located in Appendix K of this handbook.

The three other translations of the Guide, along with the English version, can be found on the Special Education website at http://www.eed.state.ak.us/tls/sped/Resources.html and can be accessed at no cost to parents or districts.
