School, Family, and Community Engagement

Partners Resource Network and Region 10 Education Service Center are working with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on the School, Family, and Community Engagement Network. The goal of this Network is to help school staff and parents build collaborative relationships and increase positive outcomes for students with disabilities.

The Network has been asked by the TEA to gather information regarding special education trends and needs from the perspective of parents and other stakeholders. This information will be used to inform the development of resources for parents/guardians and educators of children with disabilities.

Resources For Parents:

PEN Project

The PEN Project is one of three federally funded Parent Training and Information Centers (PTI) serving Texas parents of children and youth with disabilities ages 0-26.

Uniting Parents offers a network of support to families caring for children with chronic illnesses and/or disabilities.  Uniting Parents provides families in the upper 32 counties of the Texas Panhandle the resources they need to help their children.

For more information you may contact Maria Garcia, Program Director at our main office or Timela Salazar, Parent Case Manager, Lubbock Office.
