General Orientation 2-3:30 PM

I encourage you to attend a General Orientation as soon as possible. I present the General Orientations. You will learn about ordering materials, filling out your Individual Learning Plan (ILP), Progress Reports (PR) and navigating the IDEA website. Plus a question and answer period. It is best if you attend without children however if you need to bring them I will have coloring and activity pages for them. They can sit quietly with you and enjoy doing some art work. Here are the dates and times for General Orientation. Please note that some of these are in the evening (no need to sign up – just come when you can) at the IDEA office
