Scholarships for Summer Arts Programs & Legal Protections for Students with Disabilities

Charter Oak Cultural Center has a few exciting opportunities coming up that we wanted all our families to know about!

On Thursday, February 21st at 6:30 PM we will be hosting a free seminar about legal protections for students with disabilities.

 ·         All children have the right to an equal education. We will have a representative from the State Department of Education here to help explain the legal protections and special programs available to students with disabilities. Does your child have a disability? Come learn how to advocate for them at school and how to make sure they get the most out of their educational experience.

Both of these information sessions are free and open to the public. No registration is required. Both take place at Charter Oak Cultural Center, 21 Charter Oak Avenue in Hartford.
