-Preparing Students for Success-


Meeting the needs of students with disabilities is a continuing goal of the Roanoke
City Public Schools. The first class for students with special needs was
established in 1930. Since that time, there has been a consistent plan to develop and
implement a continuum of programs that appropriately address the needs of all
students with disabilities. While every effort is made to educate all students in the
"mainstream" of public education, it is recognized that a variety of special programs
is also necessary to serve all students with disabilities. Since the establishment of the first
special education class, many new programs and services have been added,
expanded, and modified to meet the needs of our students with disabilities.

Parent Support Group May 2nd from 4:00 to 6:30pm!!!

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Victory Junction will be hosting our Parent Support Group on Saturday, May 2nd from 4:00 to 6:30pm! We welcome any Victory Junction parents who would like to meet with other families in our network. Please feel free to bring a friend who also has a child with a chronic medical condition or serious illness! This will be a great opportunity to learn and chat about different situations we all may encounter. This is also a good time to talk with other parents about sending your child to camp for the first time in the summer! We are also looking into a possible Skype feature for parents out of town.

Dinner will be provided free of charge for you and your family. You are welcome to bring your children! We will provide entertainment for your child/children, while parents chat. Children will be supervised by highly qualified and trained camp professionals.

Steps to register:
Step 1: Please click the following link, to sign-up for our Parent Support Group.
Step 2: Fill out the registration form
Step 3: Add the Parent Support Group registration option
