Parents of Westerville City School District (WCSD) seventh- and eighth-grade students won’t want to miss this unique, valuable, and free workshop webinar, made possible by a grant awarded to the WCSD Transition Team. Workshop content will be beneficial to all district families, including those of students with an IEP or a 504 plan.

Beth Probst, founder and CEO of At The Core, has crafted an evening of tips and tools to share with families to help them prepare their students for high school and the road ahead. Topics will include:

  • Tips for navigating high school for students with an IEP or 504 plan,
  • High school course planning,
  • Graduation requirements,
  • Self assessment,
  • ACT/SAT testing,
  • Educational opportunities,
  • How parents can support their students,
  • And so much more!

Students receive a significant amount of information during school about their transition to high school, but this session is intended to support parents in this journey. We hope to see everyone online during one of the following sessions:
