GCC Programs Expo for students with disabilities
The Office of Accommodative Services has scheduled a presentation for parents of students with disabilities and for members of non-profit organizations representing persons with disabilities. The Department Chairs or their representatives will do presentations on their respective programs. There will be a Question and Answer period after the presentations. The purpose of this presentation is to provide parents, advocates, and students with information on our programs so that they can make better decisions on which program to possibly enroll in. Brochures and forms will be passed out to provide more information. All attendees are encouraged to ask questions related to GCC’s programs and processes.
For more information, or if you plan to attend either the sessions or the proclamation signing, please call or email John Payne at the GCC Accommodative Services Office at 735-5597 or email email@example.com
