Participating in Virtual ARD Meetings
If you have a personal computer or borrowed device from your school district, start getting familiar (if you have not already) with the applications, like Zoom, used by your school for virtual classes.
Online meetings and classes can be challenging if you or your parents do not have the necessary technological skills such as knowing how to download a document, how to submit a digital signature, or how use a computer's built-in camera and microphone.
Many school districts are also using virtual platforms for ARD meetings. Remember that your ARD meetings provide a great opportunity for you and your parents to discuss your educational progress and to map out goals for the coming year, including transitioning from high school to college, a trade school, and/or employment.
