Broken Arrow Public Schools is partnering with Jenks Public Schools to host the annual Community Resource Night for students with disabilities and their families on the following dates (Download flier):
- Thursday, March 23, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This event will take place in the media center and grand lobby at Broken Arrow High School, 1901 E. Albany in Broken Arrow.
- Thursday, March 30, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This event will take place at Jenks High School, Building 6 in the multi-purpose room located at 205 East B Street in Jenks.
This longstanding event allows all age levels of students and parents to learn firsthand about support programs and services offered to individuals with disabilities by community agencies, universities and technology centers.
“Whether students are entering the work force, heading to college, or will need lifelong assistance, this event will feature representatives from across the region who will discuss the academic and vocational support services offered to students with disabilities after graduation,” said April Lodes, transition coordinator at Broken Arrow Public Schools. “It is never too early to begin planning for the future.”
During these events, top professionals from high school and post-secondary education will discuss transition issues that students with disabilities may experience after graduating high school and moving into the next phase of their educational career or the workforce.
"It is imperative for students with disabilities and their parents to start at an early age learning about resources available to them throughout all stages of life," Lodes said. "The Community Resource Night provides a fantastic opportunity for students and parents to visit with representatives from community agencies and post-secondary educational institutions that offer services, employment opportunities and programs to students with disabilities."
