What is the Parent Resource Center?

Parent Resource Center logo

In operation since November 1992, the PWCS Office of Special Education Parent Resource Center's mission is to assist parents and families of children with disabilities to become active participants in their child's education. Its goal is to promote a positive relationship between parents and educators.

The PRC provides information, lending library (PDF), and supports parents regarding the special education process in Prince William County, and will refer parents to appropriate resources in the division and the community. PRC staff may not serve as advocates for parents; in School Intervention, IEP, or Eligibility meetings or attend a Central Office Review, State Mediation, or Due Process Hearing.

Please check the events page often for information that may be of interest to you. TTAC Online, their websites are listed on the Events page, has many resources.
