CO Department of Education | BIPOC Family Listening Sessions
The goal of the listening sessions is to gain a better understanding of the needs of our BIPOC parent's/families across the state to empower them to better support their children. To form a partnership with our BIPOC parent's/families community to accommodate their unique needs by providing them with targeted guidance.
Objectives of the listening session are to:
- Discuss student’s and parent’s equitable, diverse, and inclusive experiences with special and education identification and services.
- Understand parent knowledge regarding equitable, diverse, and inclusive, special education identification and services.
- Clarify parent needs and solicit input from Colorado’s BIPOC and bilingual community.
- Utilize the information we have gathered to provide support and resources to this community.
