Family Involvement

NTACT defines parent(s) or family involvement as parent(s)/families/guardian are active and knowledgeable participants in all aspects of transition planning (e.g., decision-making, providing support, attending meetings, and advocating for their child).

NTACT disseminates resources to guide practices that are developed from the best available evidence of effectiveness. Throughout our website resources developed directly from the research are indicated as Evidence-Based, Research-Based, or Promising.

Benefits Planning Information

Benefits Planning is a service which provides Social Security beneficiaries with information regarding the interaction of Earned Income and Social Security benefits. A Certified Work Incentives Counselor (CWIC) can provide individualized information based on a beneficiary’s specific situation.

What a way to end spirit week! WWHS has about 1,250 people in it on a daily basis (students & staff combined). Imagine spending 180 days a year in a building that’s such a fantastic place to be, even on the hard days?!? Today was a good day! (Even if the seniors wore purple 🤷🏻‍♀️)
