The Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC) in partnership with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is pleased to announce our first round of parent training sessions for 2019. All training is offered free to attendees and may include hotels, meals, and mileage. Most sessions center around families with students in special education, but our programs are open to all families. One session is being offered in Spanish for these months and more will be available later in the year.
