Walter R. Sundling Junior High School
1100 N. Smith Street, Palatine, IL 60067
7:00 - 8:30 pm

This free workshop is open to anyone in the local community!

Sue Gehring, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services in District 15, will be joining us to talk about IEP and 504 plans as it is review and re-eval season! She will present a blend of building the legal foundations for the meetings and cover collaborative Annual Review and re-evaluation strategies for a successful, student focused IEP process. She will highlight some of the most common areas of questions and concerns with respect to the meetings and tips for working with the school team.

SPARK meetings are designed to give parents information to help them in their current and future steps of the journey of parenting children with unique needs. At SPARK we realize the importance of providing:

  • Relevant programs and resources related to special education
  • Opportunities to network, receive support and help
  • Connections for parents with outside sources

The programs can also be found on the District 15 website: If you would like to be contacted by or connected with SPARK, contact Sarah Winter (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

SPARK is a Northwest Suburban Council of PTA committee serving families of children with special needs in Community Consolidated School District 15 and beyond.
SPARK is proud to be in partnership with PTA!
